It’s Friday the 13th or Lucky Black Cat Day updated Friday 13, 2020.
Did you blink? Think it’s a joke? Friday the 13th is so mired in superstition about black cats, why not do a 180 and turn black to white, a negative to a positive? Most people don’t even know the origins surrounding the number 13 anyway. Some think it stems from the betrayal of Judas the 13th disciple of Jesus but long before Christianity, Norse mythology had a similar dinner guest, the Norse god Loki. If you want to explore the negative and positive qualities of the number, enjoy 13 is also a mystical and magical number in mythology, the occult, mysteries and ancient history.
It goes to show there is no end to sources of superstitions so I say, let’s turn Friday the 13th into Lucky Black Cat Day. Black shelter cats who get adopted today will feel very lucky indeed. It’s something those of us who are owned by black cats already know. Lets share the secret! Join all the black cat fun on Instagram @blackcatsofIG
It’s Friday the 13th so it’s also our favorite vintage black cat finds. How fabulous is this short story magazine cover for May? May 1896 that is.
I collect vintage teapots or at least I used to before veterinary bills and hospice care ate up my lunch money. There is one teapot I’m still salivating over but missed bidding on an EBay auction. It’s going on my wish list.
Any day could be lucky black cat day. Imagine pouring the tea, good to the last lucky drop, into lucky black cat mugs? These beauties are mid-century Shafford red-ware The company made all kinds houseware items from salt and pepper shakers to ashtrays.
