Friday the 13th, how rare?

If you hadn’t noticed it’s that dreaded day, Friday 13th again. The day when everything goes wrong.

Thankfully it doesn’t come around that often, or does it? Well, the next one is just 4 weeks away, March 13th to be precise.

That’ll be the last one for a while, won’t it? Er, not really, there’s another by the end of the year.

Considering there are only 12 days a year when the 13th occurs on the calendar, it is admittedly rather unusual to have three instances of Friday 13th in the same calendar year

A year doesn’t go by without at least one Friday 13th, and there are quite often two Friday 13ths, but three don’t come along so much. The next one is 2025.
