It’s a Friday the 13th. I think we all know it’s is considered an unlucky day in Western superstition. They happen at least once every year but can occur up to three times in the same year. In 2017, we had two, one January and another in October. This year, it will also occur twice, today April and July. There will also be two Friday the 13ths every year until 2020, where 2021 and 2022 will have just one occurrence, in August and May respectively. Beyond the question of who figures these things out, did you know, in Finland, one Friday the 13th each year is chosen as National Accident Day to raise awareness about automotive safety… I suppose maybe because we have more accidents on Friday the 13th’s than we should.
