Today is a special Friday the 13th…do you know why?


May 13, 2011 is the only Friday the 13th of the whole year! And believe it or not, the superstitious may feel even more out of luck on this Friday the 13th in particular. Why? In the science of Numerology, the exact date of May 13, 2011 reduces to ... you guessed it: the number 13.

Did you know that:

--The 13th day of the month is slightly more likely to be a Friday than any other day of the week.
-- Every year has at least one and at most three Friday the 13ths.
-- Just as many people are born on Friday the 13th as any other day, but there are slightly more people who die on Friday the 13th. The theory is that fear, with or without reason, can kill.
