Happy Friday the 13th!

Today is Friday the 13th -- yes, the superstitious Holiday Friday the 13th.

Let me tell you the history of how Friday the 13th. It all started in 1869 when Gioachino Rossini, a famous composer, died. Another theory is that 13 is is an unlucky number and Friday is a bad day since Rossini died on this day. All this made people superstitious.

Twelve is considered very lucky, but for some unknown reason 13 is irregular. Rossini composed the Barber of Seville. Rossini is the most popular composer in the world.
