Oh Nose! It’s Friday the 13th!!!

FUN FACTS!

1. While some years are more lucky than others in terms of the number of Friday the 13th dates, it is impossible for a year to go by without having at least one Friday the 13th! This school year we have to live though 2 (the next one is in April)!

2. There are several phobias related to Friday the 13th! Paraskevidekatriaphobia is the “official” name of those who have a phobia of the holiday and a phobia of the number 13 is called triskaidekaphobia!

3. Many skyscrapers do not  have a thirteenth floor. The number 13 may be skipped in the list of levels, the floor may be referred to as 12A or M, the thirteenth letter of the alphabet , or the floor could be closed off from the public by designating it a mechanical floor.

4. The Knights of Templar were wiped out by King Philip of France on Friday, Oct. 13, 1307.

5. President Franklin D. Roosevelt would never have a 13th guest at a meal, nor would he travel on the 13th day of any month.

“Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will never find out.”

~Frank A. Clark

Today is National Do Something Nice Day (one of the best days of the year)!  Doing something nice for someone almost always evokes a very pleasant response. At the very least, it results in a smile. And, best of all, doing something nice just might be contagious!

In keeping with the spirit of this day, set a goal to do something nice for someone (make them a card, tell them they are amazing, hold the door for someone, be encouraging, say thank you, be understanding…).

Remember to let others know you are on a mission to spread kindness and they will be inspired to do the same!
