Ron Gordon, who keeps up with the patterns made by our calendars, reminds us that next week brings us Friday the 13th -and the final Odd Day of this century! Odd Day is when the month, day and year are all odd numbers in a row, and this Friday will be 11/13/15. We celebrated Odd Day in 2009, 2011, and 2013. But we can’t keep having Odd Day every two years, because we only have twelve months. So 11/13/15 will be the last Odd Day until 1/3/2105. Gordon is having a contest for Odd Day, with the biggest prize package yet.
We've established a contest and are offering the date in dollars ($1,113.15) to be shared by the winners. Prizes will be distributed to those who involve the most people in the Oddest Parade of Odd Characters, write the best Odd Ode, or create the best Odd Celebrations. The total number of winners?---oddly enough is 11+13+15---so join the fun and earn a (small) prize, with huge bragging rights!
Check out the Odd Day website for suggestions on how to celebrate Odd Day, which mostly boils down to doing something odd. And even though we won’t see any more Odd Days, we get to celebrate Square Root Day next year on 4/4/16!
