Friday the 13th


Sept 13, 2019

I didn’t realize that today is Friday the 13th until I was at work this morning! I mean, I knew it was the 13th, and I knew it is Friday…but it just didn’t click! Friday the 13th has always been lucky for us anyway. My mom was operated on Friday the 13th and a couple months later she was pregnant with me! There’s some other things as well, but they’re not coming to mind!

So, anywho…I thought I’d share some freaky facts from theFactSite about Friday the 13th.

“The fear of Friday the 13th is known as “Friggatriskaidekaphobia”

The word comes from both Norse and Greek languages. “Frigg” is Norse and is the Norse Goddess that we get our word Friday from (also Freya). “Trisaideka” is Greek and means “thirteen”, “phobia” and “fear”.

look closely, there’s a cicada

Businesses tend to suffer more on Friday the 13th, more so than any other numbered Friday.

Finland has dedicated one Friday the 13th each year as National Accident Day.

The most Friday the 13th any given year will have is three. But it is guaranteed that there will always be at least one.

Thought I’d leave you with a good luck symbol, just for good luck!

Here are some omens for you:

  • “If you cut your hair on Friday the 13th, someone in your family will die.” – unknown (Glad I cut my hair on Wednesday!)
  • “Calling a doctor for the first time on a Friday is a certain omen of death. – unknown
  • “In Somerset, it is said that whoever turns a bed on a Friday turns ships at sea. In Cumberland, babies born on a Friday were laid on the family Bible.” – unknown

“On Friday the 13th weird things are supposed to happen … Maybe I’ll get in to a relationship.” – unknown

It’s happening tonight!

A nationwide Friday the 13th full moon hasn’t happened since Oct. 13, 2000, and won’t happen again until Aug. 13, 2049. A full moon in September is also called a harvest moon, meaning it’s the full moon nearest to Sept. 23, the autumnal equinox. The spooky date gets a spooky night sky to go with it, and there won’t be another nationwide until 2049

According to the Farmers’ Almanac, those living in the Pacific, Central and Mountain time zones (US) will get to gaze on the full moon before midnight on Friday, Sept. 13, but those living in the Eastern time zone will have to fudge a little. Their full moon will happen just after midnight, at 12:33 a.m., pushing it to the much-less-spooky date of Saturday, Sept. 14.

If you miss seeing it Friday night into Saturday, you’ll get another chance. Nasa says the moon will appear full again Saturday night into Sunday morning.
