Friday the 13th
Paraskavedekatriaphobians* beware! When the 13th of the month lands on a Friday, it is considered by many people to be a very unlucky day.

Considered as unlucky as black cats, opening umbrellas indoors, or walking under an open ladder, many people stay home or avoid making  important decisions on this day. 

It is estimated that 100’s of millions of dollars of business are lost on Friday the 13th as many people will not fly or conduct business on this day.

Friday the 13th trivia
1)There are only 2 or 3 Friday the 13ths each year. (2 in 2007 – April and July).
2) Months that begin on a Sunday will contain a Friday the 13th.

*fear of all things Friday the 13th!
(Triskaidekaphobia – fear of 13)
