Why are June wedding so lucky and popular

Just why are June weddings so lucky and popular? Well it first of all gets its name - June from the Roman goddess Juno. She is the patroness of weddings and marriage. Said to bless all the weddings taking place this month - well we only just about made it this month! It is therefore the most favored month for weddings than any other in the Western world.

An ancient Roman proverb says"Prosperity to the man and happiness to the maid when married in June" Mmmmm maybe I should have married in June rather than September!!

Many of our wedding customs have been past down from ancient times. Some are just based on real symbolism and some of long forgotten traditions. These traditions vary from country to country and sometimes area and family traditions can vary.

Why is Friday the thirteenth unlucky

Just why is Friday the thirteenth so unlucky? Everyone has the moment on this day, when you think its the 13th and its a Friday - I wonder if anything will happen or go wrong. Some people go to the extreme and will not have anything that is important on this day - just in case.
The superstition evolves from the idea that the devil holds his meeting on a Friday with 12 witches. That makes an unlucky 13 people in total. So if you are sat in a meeting and there are 13 of you well...........

Now as I couldn't actually find 12 witches and the devil at a meeting to take a photograph of! This picture is the best I could do. No I can not draw for the life of me - nor can I sing for that matter. But needs must and I needed an illustration of some sort.
So just enjoy this unlucky day - me I am off to the garden with the hedge cutters...................

PS that is a tail on the devil..

What would you do if you had magic

Yes, what would you do if you had magic? Well I would certainly stop those annoying comments from people who are targeting my blog posts. Trying to leave links to get you to click onto their web page. Promising loss of weight by injection, tablet, herbal tea, blah, blah ,blah... Just eat healthily and less as well as get more exercise - I know a so easy solution but hard to do in practice. Or become years younger by choosing their so called "clinic". Even though your face will look really artificial, stretched and false; because after going under a dubious and questionable (probably not a qualified doctor) surgeons knife that costs just loads of money. Its never going to be a long term solution, age will always catch up with you again and you'll probably get infected any way. What's wrong with growing old gracefully and looking less like a stretched plucked chicken!!!

But what would you really do if you had magic?

Make someone love you?

Magic riches and wealth?

Turn someone really annoying or horrible into a snail or frog?

Wish for your life to be better some way or other?

Me, well I believe things happen for a reason and the universe has a way of taking control. Material things do not really matter and often complicate your life. Love will happen and if its not right then it was never meant to be. Being wealthy is being healthy and we can do a lot about this ourselves by eating right and staying active. Live simply and make the most of your time on this earth and stop worrying.
