Today Is Friday The Thirteenth! Isn't That Nice?

Are you aware that 13 was a luck number in Old England? Well, it was. It was the Christians that had something against 13. However, among British Traditional Crafters (witches), no number or day of the week is less lucky than any other number or day of the week. Nevertheless, as numbers go, the number thirteen is a fairly auspicious number. In fact, thirteen shows up in important and symbolic places:
  • King Arthur had 12 knights, plus himself = 13
  • Robin hood had 12 in his merry band, plus himself = 13
  • Thirteen is the number of full moons during the year.
  • In mathematics, the number 13 is a "lucky prime," a lucky number that is prime, which is a natural number which has exactly two distinct natural number divisors: 1 and itself.

These are just four examples to show that we should not have anything to fear about the number thirteen, or Friday the 13th.
