THE UNLUCKIEST DAY OF THE YEAR – FRIDAY THE 13TH

Friday, November 13, 2015 – the myth, the legend, the ultimate unlucky day of the year. This day either totally freaks you out, or you are completely unfazed. Do you believe crazy superstitions, or are you that person that purposely walks on cracks in the sidewalk just to prove your good fortune? Either way, each Friday the 13th does have a story…

How many of you cringe at the thought of Friday the 13th? I’m sure that some of you are non-believers of this outrageous superstitious day, fulfilled with dooming consequences if you witness a black cat cross your path or step on a crack buried into the sidewalk. However, some of you may view this day as what it actually is defined as – the ultimate day of bad luck. If so, you are the people that suffer from Friggatriskaidekaphobia. What? Yeah, it’s a real thing.

In 2015, we were the “lucky” ones to witness a total of three Friday the 13ths to date. Thankfully for us, today is the last one of the year, and don’t worry, there’s only one to haunt us in 2016. The Indalo man must have been with most of us this year…

If you’re like me, you might wonder where Friday the 13th came from. There’s no real answer; most sources claim that the day has biblical references, but nobody really knows for sure.

The infamous day, Friday the 13th, is filled with all of these crazy ideas and superstitions that basically say you’re doomed for life if these certain situations happen to you. For instance, if you break a mirror or walk under a ladder, you will be unlucky for 7 years. 7 years? Why 7? Nobody knows. Funny thing is – my dad was born on Friday the 13th and that myth states that any child born on Friday the 13th would be unlucky for life. But he does have me as a daughter, so he can’t be that unlucky, right? Just kidding…

So if you’re a believer, you better make sure to wear your Lems today as they carry the Indalo man, (ahem, the little guy on our logo). As legend states, the Indalo was a ghost that could hold a rainbow in his hands and is evidently a symbol of good luck. I’m a half-believer which means I’m rocking my Boulder Boots today, just in case. And let’s face it, if you buy into the Friday the 13th shenanigans, you should probably take my advice! Or you could always carry an acorn in your pocket, sleep on un-ironed sheets and put your clothes on inside out – at least you have options.
