I should point out that if airfare was substantially cheaper on the 13th, I would've jumped at it. Which goes to show you that:
- I am a little teensy bit superstitious (I have no problem driving my car on Friday the 13th, though), and
- I'm even cheaper than I am superstitious.
According to The Stress Management Center and Phobia Institute in Asheville, NC, "It's been estimated that [U.S] $800 or $900 million is lost in business on this day because people will not fly or do business they would normally do." So, apparently Friday the 13th is "unlucky" for someone.
So tell me, does Friday the 13th have any special meaning for you? Are you superstitious about today? Do you follow any other superstitions?
