How Was Your Friday The 13th?

Even though it is Friday the 13th, I don't think I know anyone who has 'friggatriskaidekaphobia' a severe fear of the thirteenth day of the month on Friday.

These people can not even go out. There have been clients who have asked not to settle on Friday 13th, who will not live on the 13th floor of an elevator building. Some high rise buildings go from 12 to 14 and skip thirteen.

 

Friday 13th 

 

We make our luck good or bad. It is our attitude and how we respond. If you wake up with an "on no it's the 13th,'' and it happens to be Friday...you have already set yourself up for "bad" luck. 

 

Note: Any month's 13th day will fall on a Friday if the month starts on a Sunday.

 

So how was your Friday the 13th?

Morning Margaret.

While I know there is that fear, I never knew the word associated with it.  Learned something new today, thanks

Hello Margaret - it's deinitely an issue of "attitude" when it comes to a fear or dislike for anything related to "thirteen".  We have the power to overcome it.  If we want.  

As for my day yesterday - no complaints.  Very good, actually.

It was like any other day. Imagine that! Lol.  We had a wonderful owl hooting under the full moon last night too...it was a perfect scene for the harvest time in our season.

I feel the same way about Friday the 13th as when mercury is in retrograde. I do not allow them to be self fulfilling prophecies.

Friday the 13th - another day, good or bad as one perceives it. Yesterday was great for me; I did my off-site quarterly review & planning. Enjoyed warm temperatures, sunshine, crystal clear skies, views of the Golden Gate Bridge, sailboat and container ships on the bay. Was too tired in the evening to take a walk, but enjoyed the almost-full moon on a night walk on Thursday.

My dad was very superstitious about Friday the 13th.  And, he was actually in a serious automobile accident on one, where he was T-boned in an intersection by a red light driver.

Hi Margaret,
I've never been the superstitious type. I remember the time I had two listings with a 1313 address.  They both sold quickly and, as far as I know, the buyers are still in them all these years later.

Carol Williams You and I may not be superstitious but we need to understand the different fears that our clients may have.
