Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood had a particular character to help people like me who are very superstitious. You're familiar with the puppet King Friday XIII who Fred Rogers created to help people think Friday the 13 is a fun day. You know King Friday XIII for singing his favorite song "Propel, Propel, Propel Your Craft" on the show. Today happens to be a special day for Fred Rogers pal King Friday XIII.

Today being Friday the 13 means King Friday XIII is celebrating his birthday. Fred Rogers wanted to make today a fun day for those who hate what today stands for. When I was a kid I used to enjoy Friday the 13 for scary movies and for King Friday XII celebrating another year of life. But thanks to my previous incidents of having the worst luck on Friday the 13 changed my view on today. The only good thing about today is that it's a special birthday for King Friday XIII from Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood.
