National Blame Someone Else Day: Friday September 13th

September 09, 2019

Nat’l Blame Someone Else Day = First Friday the 13th of the Year = September 13, 2019 

 

Apparently our Registrar at National Calendar Day isn’t who we thought.

So, according to the Registrar, we each have one opportunity every year to officially Blame Someone Else on the first Friday the 13th of the year.  Start your list, have a drink, think about all the blame and to whom you are able to pass the buck or point the finger.

Whether you think today is scary, lucky, unlucky, or just plain Friday, the Registrar wants you to put all superstition aside and focus on blame.

Silly Registrar. So here are some facts about the historical day.

We made it a while without having a Friday the 13th. Since July 2018.  Typically we get two a year. So you can plan, there’s one more coming this year – in December.

The fear of Friday the 13th is called friggatriskaidekaphobia.  Frigg is the Norse goddess whom Friday is named after and triskaidekaphobia means the fear of 13.

That’s all I got on this National Day Calendar observance.  The Registrar is losing her street cred with me. Blaming her for this post.

Done.
