Flash Facts Friday

Another opportunity to find some of the best facts about Fridays out there, the more obscure the better!




Friday Fact #1: A skit/sketch show called “Fridays” ran three seasons from 1980-1982, gaining (according to resources) even more ratings in its second season than “Saturday Night Live.”




Friday Fact #2: Is it any wonder we view Friday as one if the best days of the week? Known as T.G.I.F. Or POETS day, it kicks off the beginning of free time from the daily grind. Historically & culturally, it plays a significant part in many religious observations, or preparations for Sabbaths. Even its name, derived from the Norse Goddess Frigg (or Freja in some accounts) and her Roman counterpart, Venus, gives the day an added layer of awesomeness.


Friday Fact #3: On Friday the 13th of September, 1996, rapper Tupac (2pac) Shakur died from internal bleeding caused by the multiple gunshot wounds he’d received during a drive-by shooting six days prior, following the Tyson-Seldon fight at MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
