I know it gets to be a pain to keep up with them. But if we were using the International Fixed Calendar it would be easy.
“The International Fixed calendar (also known as the Cotsworth plan, the Eastman plan, the 13 Month calendar or the Equal Month calendar) is a solar calendar proposal for calendar reform designed by Moses B. Cotsworth, who presented it in 1902. It provides for a year of 13 months of 28 days each. It is therefore a perennial calendar, with every date fixed always on the same weekday. Though it was never officially adopted in any country, it was the official calendar of the Eastman Kodak Company from 1928 to 1989.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Fixed_Calendar
In this calendar EVERY 13th of the month is a FRIDAY THE THIRTEENTH. And, since the International Fixed Calendar has 13 months that means we would get to have 13 Friday the Thirteenths every year.
Write your Congressman (or Congresswoman, or Congressperson) and ask that he or she support the adoption of the International Fixed Calendar!!!
