May 13th Friday the 13th

Well here it is again, Friday the 13th. Unlucky to most people, except the ancient Mayans. If you suffer from Triskaidekaphobia you’ll just want to stay in bed. (That’s the fear of Friday the 13th) I am sort of afraid of the word more than the day. Anyway, no one knows exactly when this day became something to fear. We do know that the Code of Hammurabi omitted the number 13 in their list of laws so that makes it at least sometime before 1,700 BC. So they’ve made movies out of the fear, written books and omitted thinks like the 13th floor of a building or not letting 13 people in the crew of a ship. How far does it go with with you?

How to celebrate – Watch the movie “Friday the 13th”. Find a reason to celebrate Friday the 13th. Go back to bed and sleep the day away.

October 27th Black Cat Day

Talk about being born bad. Most of the world considers the black cat as an omen of bad luck and with Halloween coming on, if you are a black cat you’d better be careful! Not all places believe black cats are unlucky, Great Britain, Egypt and Japan consider the black cat a sign of good luck. I wonder if cats even know what color they are? And if so, do they even care? A cat is a cat no matter what color they are. Any luck they bring, good or bad, is not because of the cat. Don’t abuse animals. They don’t care what color you are so why should you be worried about what color they are.

How to celebrate – Adopt a black cat. (They are the least likely to get adopted). Defy superstitions today! Have a Happy Halloween.
