Friday

Friday comes from Old English “Frīgedæg.” It is named after the wife of Odin (Frigg or Freya – there seems to be some dispute over this). regardless of her name she was often associated with Venus, the Roman goddess of love, beauty and fertility.


Morning is an important time of day, because how you spend your morning can often tell you what kind of day you are going to have.”

Lemony Snicket

2020 is a leap year that started on a Wednesday. If you were superstitious you might be forgiven for thinking that in view of our current situation that it was an unlucky year, but there were only two Friday the 13ths in 2020 (March and November)

This got me thinking and doing a little research. Apparently the maximum Friday the 13ths in a single calendar year is three; either in February, March and November if the year starts on a Thursday (e.g. 2009, 2015 or 2026) or January, April and July in a leap year that starts on a Sunday (e.g. 1984, 2012 or 2040)


It is also possible to have 14 months without a Friday the 13th across two…

The most feared day of the calendar is one which occurs more often than you might think - Friday 13th. This supposedly unlucky date lent itself to a series of popular and grisly horror movies. There is even a phobia named after the phenomenon - paraskavedekatriaphobia - phew that's a mouthful to say the least lol!
