     The Paraskevidekatriaphobic fundraiser : Fear of Friday the Thirteenth Fundraiser
    Friday the Thirteenth is full of fear
    So lucky for us, there’s three this year
    The last one, occurring this July
    Is a special event – I’ll tell you why!

    But first here lies a little history,
    The truth behind this date’s mystery;
    The Templars were accused based on a hunch.   On Friday the Thirteenth, were a tortured bunch.

    Fridays were loathsome in Canterbury Tales;
    Anything planned would surely fail. In Rome, on Friday the crosses would stand And such was the fate of one unfortunate man.

    As for the number, do not throw a party
    For the thirteenth guest is sure to be sorry.
    And in your buildings, just skip that floor
    Unless you would like to risk the gore.

    Devil’s Dozen and Witches Sabbath,
    A hockey mask, superstitious habits;
    This warning tale is nearly through
    Save one more story we have for you…

    WFKU will hold a special fundraiser from July 12 to the 14, to sate the goddess and bring the station to its destined goal. Join us and come to our aid, and you shall be rewarded, too!

    Friday is Freya’s day. Tall, shapely, and with flowing golden locks, the goddess steadied the reigns of her chariot, fronted by two felines. She was headed to the WFKU studio, among the halls of the Aegir. Asgard was decadently ornate as usual, but a certain gloom hung over the kingdom. Concern was raised amongst the halls that sacrifices weren’t being met. The seidr was brought to the Aegir by Freya, and her stormy eyes grew even darker when she heard the practice was being neglected. Freya stepped off her chariot and sauntered down to the hall of WFKU. The music grew louder as she sidled through the entrance. Stunned momentarily by her crafty charms, her intent soon became clear. A date, thought unlucky by most, was fast approaching. In July, the the thirteenth day of the month would be a Friday – and seidr and sacrifices had been ignored. Since they had not been practicing their rituals, Freya thought she would use a little magic of her own. So, a spell was cast over the station and all of Midgard who listened to them. Freya, with full command over her fateful date, ruled that if they did not produce sacrifices to her by the end of that weekend, the date would be bring terror on all the branches of the great Yggdrasil for the rest of eternity. But the fertile goddess was not entirely cruel. Freya also worked into her spell that if she was satisfied with the generous offerings she hoped to receive, that they would be rewarded. Not only would Friday the Thirteenth have a new, prosperous meaning, but the music of WFKU would thus reach all the lands connected by the glimmering Bifrost. With that, Freya, leaving all stunned with her craft, left the station and its listeners with glorious purpose and mounted her purring chariot.
