January, April, and July 13th in 2012 are Friday the 13th
Consequently, several theories have been proposed about the origin of the Friday the 13th superstition.

I am so sorry to do this to you, but this post has been moved to my new website, The Pagan Calendar, hosted at shirleytwofeathers.com, and can be found in its entirety here: Friday The Thirteenth
As you explore this site, you may find links to a "page not found" instead of something cool and magickal. For this I apologize. I am very working hard behind the scenes to restore those pages along with a link to their homes on my new website where they can be viewed in full.
