Oh no! It’s Friday 13th!

That freaky day is finally here. Only three days during this year will be Friday 13th (January, April and July) and then we’ll have some peace until 2015.

Since ancient times 13 has been an unlucky number. At age 13 kids become teenagers and what can be worse than going into that horrible time were we use braces! There are pimples all over and there’s a party of hormones everywhere!

But at OfficeList we like to go against the odds and we’ll take it as a lucky number.
Why? Here are some hints. 

  • Alex Rodriguez began wearing the number 13 upon joining the New York Yankees
  • Dan Marino, known for passing the 3rd most yards in NFL history, wore the number 13.
  • Shaquille O'Neal wore No. 13 in 1996
  • The Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution officially outlaws slavery and involuntary servitude.
  • American founding father Benjamin Franklin wrote his famous aphorism, "Everything appears to promise that it will last; but in this world nothing is certain but death and taxes,"
The day is just starting, but we’ll do as Italians, who consider 13 a lucky number.

Have a great Friday 13!
