There happens to be three "Friday the 13th"
this year. They are February followed by March, and November. Even in the 21st Century, superstition around the number 13
as unlucky in the United States is still a big deal.
In Italy, and other countries for example, the number 13
is looked upon in just the reverse. But more absenteeism in the US is still duly noted at work stations on Friday the 13th
. Perhaps the ancient picture symbol of the "Death Card"
