Friday the 13th and other Superstitions

Beware all you triskaidekaphobes!
(persons with an irrational fear of Friday the 13th)

Did you know that there is at least one Friday the 13th
in every calendar year? Well hold onto your party hats
because this year there are 3! A rare occurrence which I
believe is cause for celebration. So in honor of such a
fateful day, I am offering one of my Black Cat Holiday Sticks
as the Friday Freebie for one FANTASTICAL FOLLOWER.

For your chance to win, click on the FOLLOW link just
to the left of this post before Friday the 13th. If you already
FOLLOW THIS BLOG
then you are already entered in the
drawing. I will post the name of the winner on Friday.

Until then here are some Superstitions to keep in mind:
A strange black cat on your porch brings prosperity.
A cat sneezing is a good omen for everyone who hears it.
Dreaming of a white cat means good luck.
Rubbing your rabbits foot may increase your chances
of winning the FRIDAY FREEBIE.

Woohoo! I'm already entered in the drawing.

I've always loved Friday the 13th especially since some people act so silly about it. I didn't know there was actually a scientific name for it!

Yes Melissa! Three in one year is definitely cause for celebration!

Friday the 13th has always been lucky for me! Still...I've got my rabbit's foot in one hand and my four leaf clover in the other!

Enchanted Blessngs,

Yeah.....crossing fingers and toes...and all other limbs. Does a Pug named Henry count for sneezing? LOL

No fears, but one year on Friday the 13th our surgical supply suitcase got left in Anchorage, and a purse snatcher snuck behind the counter while we were in back. But it wasn't his lucky day as all he got was a supply of feminine hygiene products as the owner had emptied her purse. We laughed so hard! Luckily the purse was found 30 minutes later on a side road and returned! True story!

PS, I'm glad to be entered already!!!!
