    My DH gave me my engagement ring on a Friday the 13th in Dec 1974! So since I am a Christian and don't believe in superstition. We did all the things you are not supposed to do on our wedding day! We have been married for 35 years last Jan!

    Friday the 13th is an anniversary of the day we got engaged officially. So we always celebrate it even if we only talk about the date and remembering.

    We used to try to celebrate our wedding anniversary and something would go wrong. One of us would be sick or one time the motor in our Blazer fell out! in a town 30 miles from home!

    So we made more of Fri the 13th because it was fun and because there are more Fri the 13th in a year than our wedding anniversary! there are usually 2 to 3 a year. One year it actually fell in Dec which was when the first one was. My DH is more apt to remember and tell me about the Fri the 13ths coming up than he is our actual wedding anniversary! LOL

    Got any good positive stories about Friday the 13th?

    Please keep them positive! I would prefer to avoid the superstitions but as long as it is upbeat that's ok!

    Would love to hear your stories!

    I love it! I am just not about any superstitions. I prefer to stay with the positive and avoid the negative thinking as much as I can!

    We positively are NOT having a hurricane this Friday the 13th, as opposed to Fri, Aug 13, 2006 when Hurricane Charley tore through much of southwest Florida.

    We got married on the 29th of February. On years there's no 29th we call it our unaversary.

    This friday the 13th I get to take my middle granddaughter back to Kansas. She's the best road trip partner ever!! I'd rather road trip with her than my hubby!

    My youngest son was born on the 13th...not a Friday. This Friday the 13th he will be 46. And I am glad I'm not in south Texas where he was born!

    My oldest daughter will be 13 on Friday the 13th. My first teenager! I'm looking forward to it! She said she didn't even want anything because she already has everything she wants!

    My dad was so not superstitious, he would joke that Friday the 13th fell on a Tuesday this month...or a Wednesday, etc. Always made us chuckle.

    I have loved Fri. 13th for over 34 yrs. That was the date that DH told me he loved me. Two yrs before we were married. Since that time I have always loved Fri. the 13th. It's a lucky day for me.

    My younger brother was born on a Friday the 13th, and he had always claimed that it was a 'lucky' day for him.

    The unusual thing is, when he died, we held off on the funeral for one extra day, and he was buried on a Friday the 13th. No sadness, though, because, there is no doubt where he is now. So, even that day was a good one for him.

    My wonderful current husband asked me out the first time on a Friday the 13th. Because he is such a joy I chose a Friday the 13th for our wedding, that was eight years ago. I had been resingled for 23yrs.

    My niece is getting married this Friday, August 13th. I know we will all have a great time. Although, her mother fell and broke 3 ribs this past weekend and spent 2 nights in the hospital.
