5 Fun Ways to Celebrate Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th means something to everyone. 

To some, it’s a day to be feared.

Others, just another day.

I fall into the latter category. Occasionally, I find Friday the 13th to be a day of luck. For example, I woke up with a migraine today; when I was adjusted by my chiropractor, I was recommended for an impromptu massage. I was leery because I had my 4yo in tow, but she was quiet the whole time — now *that’s* lucky!

I feel there are many ways to celebrate this day. Why waste your energy on your paraskavedekatriaphobia under the covers when you can laugh in Friday the 13th’s face by celebrating!?!
  1. Gather up some friends to watch the movie. Some independent theaters will offer a late-night showing of Friday the 13th… but it’s a pretty easy movie to find on DVD… or *gasp* VHS if you still own a working VCR. 
  2. Participate in a 13 bar-crawl. 
    Can you hit up 13 bars in one night? What a fun challenge! Hit up downtown with no shortage of bars so you can walk in & out of each bar with ease. Even bigger challenge? Getting a drink or a shot in every bar, and still remain standing at the end of the night. Bonus points if you get 13 friends to join you, and the 13th friend = the DD.
  3. Get inked! 
    Some tattoo parlors will offer a $13 special if you get a tattoo pertaining to the number 13 on Friday the 13th. If you’ve ever gotten a tattoo, you know how great of a deal this is!
  4. Take an elevator to the 13th floor.Many buildings with 13 or more floors eliminate naming the 13th floor the 13th floor because of the superstition behind the number. Tempt fate by taking an elevator to the “14th floor”… just for fun.
  5. Buy $13 worth of lottery tickets.
    However you do it, be it 13 $1 scratch-offs, 13 Mega-Million tickets, etc, here is another way to laugh in the face of this superstitious day. You never know… right?

    LOVE your interpretation of the prompt. Thanks so much for linking up. I don’t know what was up with the linky this morning, but I added you.

    I love the bar idea.

      Thanks, Alissa!! And thanks for linking me up… you’re in the first weeks of your meme, there’s bound to be minor wrinkles & tweaks. I understand completely!

      And yes, I’m totally considering that 13-bar-crawl next Friday the 13th. It’s in July… I have never EVER hit up 13 bars in one night, however, it is a challenge I’d be willing to take on if I got the right group of people together. Challenge accepted!
