Friday the 13th

Today is Friday the 13th, and last night was a full moon (the Wolf Moon). If you are a superstitious person, that's a double whammy! Here are some interesting facts about both events.

paraskavedekatriaphobia

Do you have paraskavedekatriaphobia? That means a fear of Friday the thirteenth. If you do, you're not alone. Here are some interesting facts about Friday the 13:

-There were said to be 13 people at The Last Supper, and President Theodore Roosevelt reportedly refused to ever have 13 people at a meal, or to travel on Friday the 13th.

-Plane tickets often cost less if you want to fly on Friday the 13th. That's because lots of people refuse to fly on this day!

-Next time you get on the elevator of a tall building, take a look at the numbers. Is there a floor 13? Many buildings don't have one, because it's considered unlucky.

selenophobia

Do you have selenophobia? That means a fear of a full moon. Full moons are said to bring about bad luck and strange behavior, which is where the legend of the werewolf comes from. (If werewolves come out on full moons and last night's full moon was a Wolf Moon, we wonder what that means!)

-In a 2005 study, almost 70% of nurses interviewed said they believed that a full moon resulted in more patients in the ER.

-Some police officers think that a full moon makes people act with less regard to the law.

-And of course, those who believe in werewolves believe that the full moon causes them to turn into these hairy beasts.

Do you believe in bad luck? We don't. But it's fun to learn more about these events. Have a lucky day, okay?
