Interesting dates in 2012

Interesting dates in 20122012 is a rather fascinating year in terms of interesting dates.  First we had leap year extending this year by one day.  We also have the end of the Mayan calendar, the presidential election, and now something else.  There are going to be three Friday the 13ths this year.  Friday April 13th 2012 is the second Friday the 13th to occur this year, with the next one happening in December.

If you are moving this year, you might want to consider whether you want to do so on Friday or when the next Friday the 13th appears.  Likewise, you might want to avoid these days all together.  It will depend on how you consider the number 13.  The number 13 has always been considered one of superstition and when you move you definitely do not want to have bad luck.  What would happen if the moving company picked up your items to be delivered a week later, but on the way you had car trouble, so you were unable to meet the movers on the appropriate day?  Perhaps you feel that the number 13 is lucky, so you decide to hire the moving company for that day to ensure a successful move.

Most of Hollywood has also helped in personifying the day as an unlucky one.  The horror movies are abundant about Friday the 13th, lending credence to the fact that it might be an unlucky day to move for those who are superstitious.  At least you know with a move that you will not have to deal with a 13th floor, as they are left out of hotels and apartment buildings.
