Friday the 13th. It’s a superstition that goes back to the 14th century–or even earlier.

But are you the type of person to buy into all of that? It’s not really one of scariest days of the year, is it?

Scary days?  I think tax day… Or even the day after Thanksgiving, braving the crowds at the mall, trying to find the right Star Wars Toy! Yikes! Run for your life!

Black cats, broken mirrors, ladders…things that go bump in the night? Are you scared of those, too? I hope not! And if you are…well, maybe you shouldn’t admit it! HEE HEE.

Fear of Friday the thirteen is known as paraskevidekatriaphobia. Can you say that 5 times fast?  If you can’t pronounce it, you must not have it… right?

Experts estimate that businesses lose between $800-$900mm USD on this day because people avoid traveling, going to work and even, shopping…and buying a house is a no-no!


So…lets do something practical today!

  1. Read chapter 13 of Clay’s book, Learning To Sing.  Titled, Aim For The High Notes, I am sure you will feel better after this short read.
  2. Take A Thirteen Minute Walk With Clay:  It may only take you around the block, but a walk with your iPod filled with Clay songs will put a smile on your face.  See how far walking for thirteen minutes in one direction will take you from your house.
  3. Donate $13.00 to The National Inclusion Project.  If we all did that today, we could send a child to camp!
  4. Spend 13 Minutes without any distractions:  Turn off the phone, the computer and the TV.
  5. Take 13 minutes to think about Rickey Smith, his family and friends.  They all need positive thoughts and prayers today!
  6. Send 13 E-mails.  Send a positive thank-you to a policeman, a teacher, a soldier, a nurse…or just a good friend.

Yes…we can make this  a positive day!!  I would rather spend my day enjoying this great time than worrying about black cats, or 13 floors in a building.

Have you any other ideas for today?

  1. I am not superstitious. Love the pictures of Clay and will try to do the suggestions above if possible. I do think of Rickey everyday and say a little prayer for him and his family!

  2. Thank you for this Musicfan. We can all use something positive to do.
    Remembering Rickey this morning, and his family and his AI family that is attending his service today. Sad. But so many good memories need to be re-lived.
