A new message is spreading around Facebook, claiming that this is the first time in 823 years that October has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, and 5 Sundays. Whether or not the message is true, it has now been posted by thousands of Facebook users.
One version of the message is as follows:
An interesting fact about October 2010: This October has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays, all in 1 month. It happens once in 823years.These are money bags. Paste it on your status and money willappear in 4 days. Based on Chinese fengshui. Whoever stops this willexperience none
According to one source, this statistic is actually false. According to the person who responded, “it happened in 1982, 1993, 1999, 2010 and will happen again in 2021″. As many other Facebook users have noted, the month is also special because this month included the date 10-10-10. So overall, this October is an extremely lucky month, even if the 5 Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays isn’t as rare as you thought!
