Hoax that Circulates Once in 823 Years

Chinese people believe that only once in 823 years there can be 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. What is more, if you know about this rare occurrence and tell it to others both you and the others would be rich! Isn’t it amazing? And guess what, this year, 2011, has 5 Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in the month of July. Yes, it’s this month!!!

We wish this wasn’t a hoax!!! This is just another hoax about the Chinese Culture and Feng Shui. Many people claim to receive this email message from their networks. To begin with, any month that is 31 days long and starts with Friday naturally has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. This happened in 1983, 1988, 1994, 2005, 2011 and will happen in 2016. Additionally, Feng Shui masters did not believe in superstitions like this…
