Blog Post created by hausmus Employee on Jan 17, 2017

Hello and welcome to another edition of Ciena Community Happenings! This week we’re reviewing what happened last week, the week ending Friday, January 13, 2017. So, I thought it we could start out with some facts about Friday the 13th:

  • It’s unclear why the day is feared, but the first documented mention of the day can be found in a biography of Italian composer Gioachino Rossini, who died on a Friday 13th.
  • The fear of Friday the 13th is reals and called friggatriskaidekaphobia or paraskevidekatriaphobia. It is said that millions of people.
  • For a month to have a Friday the 13th, the month must begin on a Sunday.
  • Alfred Hitchcock was both on Friday, August 13, 1899 and he made his directorial debut in 1922 with a movie called Number 13.
