Friday the 13th

Happy or should it be merry Friday the 13th.  I have to admit that this is one day when I have always been traditionally been pretty lucky.  I love to go out and play bingo or hit the slot machines when I can afford it. 

It has always amazed me that there are people that are afraid of this day.  Apparently there are enough of them that this phobia even has its own name 'friggatriskaidekaphobia'.  Now if that isn't a mouth full.  Also it looks as though this is a rather new superstition as there is no mention of it prior to the 19th century. 

I managed to find lots of neat facts about this day here.

So are you going to stay at home and wait out this day or it it a signal to be lucky to you?
