friday the 13th

I was born on June 13th at 13:12 (military time) and I turned 13 on Friday the 13th - therefore, I've always held a special place in my heart for the number 13! Many people believe the day is unlucky, but I believe the opposite! Did you know that fear of Friday the 13th is known as Paraskevidekatriaphobia?! The number 13 got it's bad rep because there were 13 people present at the Last Supper (Jesus and his 12 apostles). Judas, the apostle w­ho betrayed Jesus, was the 13th member of the party to arrive, and from then on the number was considered a bad omen.

Whether you are superstitious or not, it's fun to give into the whimsey, mystical nature of the day! Here are some images we love to celebrate this magical day! Guess how many there are?! ;)

Have a splendid day! Don't forget to throw some salt over that shoulder!
