In case you were unaware, today is Friday the 13th — the first one of the new year! What does that mean? In addition to black cats crossing your path and wishing on four leaf clovers, try to take a minute on your lunch break to toss together a postcard or two. Then, stop by the post office on your way home to drop off the mail, and it will be cancelled with today’s date on it: lucky number 13!
Now if only there were some well designed, slightly disconcerting postcard stamps to put on these guys…
(are you listening to me, USPS?) 😉
*: a fear of Friday the 13th
PS: there are two more Friday the 13th dates this year, so you can plan ahead! April 13th and July 13th are next up, in addition to today. And guess what? This year’s friday dates are each thirteen weeks apart from each other — do you think that it’s a mere co-incidence?
