Wow, two Love Festivals in a row! Friday the 13th, for me, is a day when the Feminine is celebrated (the "Church" frowned upon such matters and circulated the bad luck idea, I believe). Friday = Freya's Day = Venus Day, and 13 = the number of lunar months in a year, so a day of the Moon. The Moon and Venus are major symbols of the Feminine Powers of the Universe.
Following right on Her heels is Valentine's Day, when red, the color of Mars, the heart, a feminine emblem, and arrows, Mars again, symbolize the clandestine love of Mars and Venus. It doesn't GET any more romantic!
