    Quick question:
    Do you avoid major decisions on Friday the 13th?

      Never, I am neither superstitious nor fearful.  It is a day like any other day!!
      Sometimes I wouldn't  even realize that it is the 13th.

    Personally, I like number 13. In Judaism it's a lucky number. My apartment is #13 (in Israel). And this Friday, August 13, I made a major decision of this year. It's all just your attitude.

    ReuVera-I didn't know that about the #13 being a lucky number in Judaism. Thanks for that info.

    Sofs- similar topic, but different question.  sorry if it is confusing. smile  You are obviously reading the forums closely, LOL

    Billy-did you read my hub about the number 13?  I listed (13) movies with the #13 in it.  And, I agree about being afraid of that next Friday the 13th movie, LOL.  They actually now have 13! Over K I L L

    Not really. 13 is also my favorite number (Mama Sez, your baby is sooooo cute).

    But then again, the last time it was Friday the 13th (August 13), I couldn't help but notice we suffered one setback over another that day. Traffic was awful, we could not find a taxi, my proposal was rejected and we had to cancel a dinner date with my brother because I wasn't feeling well. sad That was the only time when I could say that the number 13 was an unlucky number (or date) for me.
