Make Friday the 13th Your Lucky Day with PCHSearch&Win!

friday_the_13th_

Greetings, Searchers!

Yes, today is Friday the 13th … perhaps the unluckiest day in the calendar. At least that’s what some people say.

So off I went to PCHSearch&Win to find out why today’s date has such a lousy reputation.

There are several theories about the origin of the Friday the 13th superstition. One states that it is a combination of two older superstitions: 13 is an unlucky number and Friday is an unlucky day. Another theory says that the popularity of Friday the 13th derives from a book of the same name written back in 1907.

There is a word to describe a fear of Friday the 13th: friggatriskaidekophobia!  (Frigga is the name of the Norse goddess for whom “Friday” is named, and triskaidekophobia means the fear of the number 13).

In Spanish-speaking countries, however, Tuesday the 13th (martes trece) is considered your unlucky day. In Italy, Friday the 17th is considered a day of bad luck (In Italy, the number 13 is considered a lucky number!).

Because some people refuse to travel, or even get out of bed, on Friday the 13th, it is estimated that $800 million to $900 million is lost in business on this day.

But who says Friday the 13th has to be unlucky?

Let’s turn things around and make Friday the 13th a lucky day – starting right now at PCHSearch&Win! Because with your first search of the day, after logging in, you’ll be entered to win the incredible PCH SuperPrize. And winning the SuperPrize would, by all means, make you one of the luckiest people on earth!

In fact, you can use PCHSearch&Win to make the most of Friday the 13th. For example, search for online clips from the Friday the 13th movie series. Look for some great bargains and do your holiday shopping online – and help to make up for that Friday the 13th slump in sales. Or simply find out when the next Friday the 13th is. I’m sure there are at least 13 things you can search for today on PCHSearch&Win!

And while you’re celebrating the number 13, head over to PCHLotto and make “13” one of your favorite numbers to play.

Let’s make Friday the 13th the luckiest day ever!

Good luck, everyone!

I just now read this blog,but, it’s irony is that I was at IHOP earlier on the 13th and I had a chicken dinner and got the Wishbone. I broke the big piece and made this wish for health, wealth, and happiness…..We’ll see what happens.
