I think today is the first time in my life I have ever wondered, why is Friday the 13th such a big deal?! Have you ever wondered why do we always dread the 13th when it lands on a Friday? Well, being the history buff I am, I had to look it up (yes Google is my best friend!) There were a few theories as to why Friday the 13th is such a "bad" day. One has to do with the crucifixion of Jesus and the 13 apostles, although it doesn't exactly have an exact tie into Friday the 13th. Another theory has to do with a book written in 1907 titled "Friday The Thirteenth" which is about a broker causing chaos and causing the stock market to crash. A more popular one dates back to October 13, 1397 when King Philip IV of France arrested many of the Knights Templar. Which to me none of these explanations aren't as exciting as I had hoped, but this may lay to rest some of my concerns over Friday the 13th and remind me that maybe there isn't too much to be worried about and should just be thankful to have a roof over my head, food for my tummy, and a wonderful husband and job to help pay for it all. See, the number 13 isn't such an unlucky number!
On a lighter side, I am working on some neat items for my booth #65 at The Blue Ridge Antique Center. Some of them you will not see listed on The Country Shed's Facebook Group for sale, which gives you an excuse to swing by and see what else I have to offer!
Soon I will have some awesome news from The Country Shed...we are expanding to Westlake, VA! Details coming soon!
