Happy Friday the 13th

~~Friday the 13th is an unlucky day in much of Western Europe, North America, and Australia. Many people avoid travel and avoid signing contracts on Friday the 13th. Floors in tall buildings often skip from 12 to 14. And while the superstition is believed to be fading, many still have a keen interest in the supposedly unlucky day.
~~References to Friday the 13th as a day connected with bad luck generally began to show up in western literature around the mid-17th century. There are quotes referencing Friday the 13th that date back to 1656, or perhaps earlier. Friday's were considered a bad day for many ordinary tasks, from writing letters to conducting business and receiving medical treatment!

Here are some funny superstitions
about Friday the 13th,

and apparently, Fridays in general
from way back in olden times:

Needleworking: "I knew an old lady who,
if she had nearly completed a piece of needlework on a Thursday, would put it aside unfinished,
and set a few stitches in her next undertaking,
that she might not be obliged either to begin the new task on Friday
or to remain idle for a day." (1883)
Hearing news: "If you hear anything new on a Friday,
it gives you another wrinkle on your face,
and adds a year to your age." (1883)
Moving: "Don't move on a Friday,
or you won't stay there very long." (1982)

Our dad will never start anything new on a Friday. Even when the Beans go on holiday, if the first day is on a Friday, they leave a day early and stay overnight at a hotel before they go.

With a box fort like that, it's no wonder you brothers aren't afraid of Friday the 13th!

Gattina said...

Wow ! you live in a real carton/box castle ! what a construction ! Must be very funny to play in there.
I didn't even notice that it was Friday 13, and nothing special happened !
