A quick note for those who think like me – Friday the 13th shouldn’t go unnoticed.
It’s always been a lucky day for me. I like the mystery of the day, the pretense that something odd might happen.
It was on a Friday the 13th that I became engaged, and I’ve been happily married over 30 years. It was a Friday the 13th that I landed one of my dream jobs—well a dream for a bit, then turned into a nightmare. Where am I going with this?
It’s still a day of mystery, when we can experience something and blame it on the day.
For some it’s the superstitious bad luck day, though I think that kind of sentiment is waning. People don’t seem to take stock in unknown territories any longer, being connected means having answers at our fingertips. The odd is explained away, easily enough.
But if something strange happens to you today, good or bad, go ahead and blame it on Friday the 13th.
