Today is my mother’s 1/2 birthday, and Friday the 13th. She was born on Friday the 13th, which, back in those days was not a fun time as taxes were due on March 15th, so she wanted to celebrate her half birthday instead.

So what if we had an international holiday whenever the 13th of the month fell on a Friday? We could all actively try to avoid bad luck or do something to bring good luck. I sent this out to friends to see if they were lucky in some way. One friend ordered an interesting book. My brother came down to visit and we had a fun dinner celebrating with my mom. Another friend who is a curator at a museum got news of a permanent grant to create and maintain two new exhibits! A good day.

What did you do to have good luck today?
