Happy 13!

So many superstitions lie aroud the unluckiest day of the year -Friday the 13th. And for those fortuante and UNSUPERSTITIOUS brides, there are 3 Friday the 13ths in 2009! Two have already passed, February and March, but for those of you still looking for a date have the best month left- November!

But where did all the hoopla come from around this mysterious date? Well here is what I found from good ol' Wikipedia:

1.In numerology, the number twelve is considered the number of completeness, as reflected in the twelve months of the year, twelve signs of the zodiac, twelve hours of the clock, twelve tribes of Israel, twelve Apostles of Jesus, twelve gods of Olympus, etc., whereas the number thirteen was considered irregular, transgressing this completeness.

2. Friday has been considered an unlucky day at least since the 14th century's The Canterbury Tales[6], and many other professions have regarded Friday as an unlucky day to undertake journeys or begin new projects. Black Friday has been associated with stock market crashes and other disasters since the 1800s

Hence, the combo of Friday and 13, has been known as an unlucky day!

For the gals still looking for their perfect place...this will be your luckiest ( and best bargain) day of the year! But the clock is ticking and you better book now!
