Would You Get Married On Friday 13th?
Today is the second of three Friday 13th to contend with in 2015. Does that mean we have to hide away at home, avoid black cats and ladders or are we safe to venture out or even, heaven forbid, hold one of the most important days of our lives: our wedding day? The fear of Friday 13th is well embedded into our daily lives, many people won't fly on Friday 13th, 80% of skyscrapers have apparently missed out the 13th floor and some hospitals don't even have a ward 13. But is our fear of Friday 13th justified? Well, whilst researching for this blog, one thing became clear...there is no clear single reason why we should be scared of Friday 13th!! Some people relate it back to Christianity, others to the Egyptians and to the French monarchy. As time has passed the superstitions and traditions have become more embedded and more elaborate; even Hollywood has jumped in with blockbuster movies. Here's the key question...if your ideal wedding venue could only offer you availability and a 50% discount for Friday 13th or postpone for say another year and pay full price, would you decline or accept? We are really intrigued by your answer. When discussing this in the office earlier, we were split... I said go for it and make your own luck! I mean, how scary can a black cat be?! Just heavens sake, don't spill any salt or drop your compact mirror.
