Friday May 13th - The ONLY Friday the 13th in 2011

Why is Friday the 13th so UNLUCKY? 

According to

In biblical references, it is believed that Cain killed Abel on Friday the 13th. We are not sure how this was determined, as calendars were unlikely to have been in existence back then.
We do know with certainty, the ancient Babylonian Code of Hammurah omitted the #13 in it's list of laws. Written in 1,700 B.C., it sggests ancient Bablylonians considered the #13 to be unlucky.

What say you? You don't know how to dance like a chicken? Good thing I found instructions!

  2. When the music starts, hold your hands out in front of you and open and close them like a chicken beak four times.
  3. Put your thumbs in your armpits and flap your wings four times.
  4. Place your arms and hands like the tail feathers of a chicken and wiggle down to the floor four times.
  5. Clap four times.
  6. Repeat steps 1-5 four times.
  7. After the fourth time take the hands of the people on either side of you and everyone move in a circle.

  9. Repeat until the end of the music or until you fall on the floor.
