Friday the 13th! It’s the first of a rare two-fer (March 13th also falling on a Friday this year). We won’t have another pair of months with Fridays on the 13th until 2015. This can only happen in February and March, which means the first of all double 13/Fridays will occur the day prior to Valentine’s Day. Clearly today is the less scary day of today and tomorrow. As I was born on the 13th (a boring Monday, unfortunately) I’ve always had an affinity to this number – growing up I would divide the year into birthday fractions, giving me random excuses to celebrate days like today (happy 5/12ths!!). So while I can understand a rational dislike for a number (particularly primes), maybe we can all band together and make the controversial case that Fridays themselves are not so terribly awful. So cheers, happy day, happy Friday the 13th!
