Yes, Today is Friday the 13th ! (November 13, 2015)
Oh my! Today is Friday the 13th!
Reported for centuries in the west as a day when misfortune besets people, Friday the 13th emanates from #13, considered an unlucky number. This would explain why some avoid conducting important business on this day and why hotels historically avoid numbering the 13th floor 13, instead going from 12 to 14. The theories on the origin of Triskaidekaphobia, the fear of Friday the 13th, are numerous, but the most often cited is the 13 at dinner the night of the Last Supper, which included Jesus Christ and the 12 apostles, one of whom was the infamous betrayer, Judas Iscariot, a.k.a. the unlucky 13th.
So how often does Friday the 13th occur in a calendar year? Anywhere from one to three times, with 2015 being a triple play: February, March and November. In 2014, there was only one Friday the 13th (June), which will hold true in 2016 as well (May). In 2013, Friday the 13th occurred twice, September and December.Download Bulletin PDF
