Watch out! Are you superstitious? Whatever you do, don’t walk under a ladder and don’t let a black cat cross your path this Friday. It’s Friday the 13th. Throughout most of recorded history, the number 13 has been seen as an unlucky number. It occurs one to three times a year, but for 2016 this will be the only occurrence.
