It's Friday the 13th, I'm in Love

If you suffer from paraskevidekatriaphobia...the irrational fear of Friday the 13th, then 2012 simply won't be your year. (And you thought the Mayan calendar ending this year was something to worry about...)

There will be three Friday the 13th dates this year, and they will each be 13 weeks apart. Three Friday the 13th's happen every few years. The last time it occurred was in 2009 and the next will be in 2015. What is rare about this event is that it is happening on a leap year. It won't happen again on a leap year until the year 2040. The last time it took place during a leap year was 1984 (A famous year like 2012, because of that George Orwell novel. Yes, Big Brother is watching you!!!)
