It’s that uncanny day of the year again, when people suffering from friggatriskaidekaphobia whimper on their beds, and meme makers and sharers are having a good time spooking their friends on social media. But for yours truly, Friday the 13th is a special day.
Me and my partner for life, Yeyette, we married on a Friday the 13th. And that was last year, 13 September 2013, when all of Metro Manila and its surrounding environs were being showered by rainfall… except for San Pedro Tunasán, La Laguna where we were wed! It was a historic date not just for the two of us but also for the (then) town because it was the first time since the late 1950s when a Mozarabic Rite wedding was held there.
Well, just reminiscing here. And just also to remind everyone that Friday the 13th is not bad at all, just mere superstition that needs to be relegated to Hollywood garbage. Even Jason Vorhees would agree.
Three months to go, and it will be our anniversary. 🙂
