Friday The Thirteenth

Continuing on with interesting facts about the Gregorian Calendar (not to say there is a lot of them):

The 400-year cycle of the Gregorian calendar has 146,097 days and hence exactly 20,871 weeks. […] In the 400-year cycle, more months begin on a Sunday (and hence have Friday the 13th) than any other day of the week. 688 out of every 4800 months (or 172/1200) begin on a Sunday, while only 684 out of every 4800 months (171/1200) begin on each of Saturday and Monday, the least common cases.

How about a look-back at some wonderful Friday The 13th moments, by Cinemassacre’s James Rolfe.

By the way, close call this month with today’s Friday the 14th.
