Look out for the black cat and the ladder in your path.
It's Friday the 13th.
July 13, 2012 happens to fall on a Friday. That's not rare this year.
The 13th day of January and April fell on Friday this year. According to USA Today, that's the first time since 1984 that a trio of Friday the 13ths have fallen in such a small window.
But another 13 Fridays will pass before we get another Friday the 13th. Got that?
We'll have to wait until September 2013 for the next occurrence. December 2013 will offer another. So will June 2014.
OK, I'll stop scanning the calendar in my iPhone now.
Check out this series of that I found on Southington (CT) Patch this morning.
I'm curious: Do you try to avoid anything when the No. 13 in your calendar falls on a Friday? Do you have other superstitions?
