Random Friday the 13th

I bet there are a bunch of little babies out there coming into the world today. What would it be like to be born on Friday the 13th? I mean, being born on the 13th of any month means you're going to have a considerable number of birthdays falling on a Friday. It wouldn't bother me, I don't think, but did you know (according to Wikipedia, which of course is all-knowing and always right) that an estimated 17 to 21 million people in the U.S. are affected by a fear of this day? For some it's so bad they won't even get out of bed.

And I thought my phobia of spiders was bad!

Jack was due on April 1st, and I was bummed he didn't know how to read a calendar and came later. I think "wacky" birthdays would be fun!

Do you know why Christians believe that Friday the 13th is unlucky?
1) Jesus died on a friday
2) There were 13 people at the last supper
3) Judas was the 13th guest at the last supper

*I heard this on the radio & thought it was pretty interesting:)*
