Paraskevidekatriaphobics, beware! Today is Friday the 13th. Stay off of the the thirteenth floor, avoid breaking mirrors, stay away from black cats. Pull the blankets over your head and spend the day in bed, if you feel totally unlucky and vulnerable.

Make Your Dreams Come True Day counteracts the negative vibe of Friday the 13th this year. This holiday is always observed on the 13th, whether a Friday or some other day. In honor of this day, take at least one step toward achieving your ultimate dream.

Blame Someone Else Day, celebrated on the first Friday the 13th of the year, is a golden opportunity! Whatever's going on in your life, especially those nagging little issues that might be your fault, blame those things on someone else. Poof! You're innocent.

Rubber Duckie Day commemorates the birthday of the rubber duckie beloved by Ernie on Sesame Street.

Stephen Foster Memorial Day honors one of the United States' most famous songwriters. Foster wrote "Oh! Susanna" - it doesn't get much more American than that.

Scalloway, Scotland, celebrates the Scalloway Fire Festival. The event features a Viking vessel set fire at sea.

India celebrates Lohri, a time for people from all social classes to come together, relax, and take a break from the normal routine.

Try a simple yet elegant dessert, featuring peaches, ice cream, and raspberry sauce, in honor of National Peach Melba Day.
