Awakenings: Friday the 13th

Today is TGIF! But, that’s not all, and perhaps for some, not a Friday looked forward to in anticipation. Why? Because…

Today is…

Friday the 13th


Throughout most of recorded history, it has been common knowledge that the number 13 is associated with bad luck. There is even a name for people who live in fear of the number 13: They suffer from Triskaidekaphobia. Today, the 13th day of the month falls on a Friday with that incident bringing a whole new dimension to the number 13. But why all the hoopla? No one seems to be too concerned with Monday the 13th, Tuesday the 13th, etc. but Friday the 13th is a different story. Then, on this day, June 13, 2014, as luck would have it, full moon falls on Friday the 13th! Adding a full moon to the picture sends us off into the 3rd dimension! The last time this occurred was on Oct. 13, 2000, and it won’t happen again until Aug. 13, 2049.



Sharla Shults‘s insight:

Today is still TGIF any way you look at it! So, it is hard to fathom in today’s world that Friday was ever viewed as an unlucky day of the week. Historically, in days gone by, why Friday the 13th is known as a day of bad luck goes beyond just the number 13.

  1. The most unlucky Friday will be if it’s Earth’s Last Day (except that it will already be Saturday somewhere on Earth). Each of us, in our own time, will experience a “Last Friday”–our last one in this world. But, hey, these a are too gloomy thoughts for TGIF. Have an extraordinary weekend.

  2. Interesting because no one is really sure where the superstition originated.

    I’m not superstitious–well a little but this day withthe full moon more responsible nearly ruined my grandson’s graduation. Wild storms hit and missed us but in the end, it was dry when it mattered.
