best days to get married in 2013

if you're planning to get married in 2013, you may want to heed the wisdom of the farmers' almanac to find the best date to get married. up here in the northeast the farmers' almanac is read and consulted throughout the year. we're all especially keen to see what kind of winter it says we're going to have. from the sounds of it it's going to be an unusually cold and blustery winter with "above normal" percipitation. oh no!

those of you with summer weddings* may want to refer to the following dates. according to the farmers' almanac, what follows is a list of the Best Days in 2013 to Get Married (or at least Good Days to Get Married in 2013). 

  • May: 4-6, 9-11, 14-17, 20, 21
  • June: 1, 2, 6, 7, 10-13, 16-18, 30
  • July: 3-5, 8-11, 14, 15, 30, 31
  • August: 1, 4-7, 10, 11, 28, 31
  • September: 1-4, 7, 8, 18, 28-30

you may want to know that the "peak foliage date" in maine in 2013 will be october 5-21 on the coast and october 1-17 inland. 

i love the almanac! there are so many other cool things to read about. for example, it'll tell you the best days to busy a car, or dig holes, or cut hair to increase growth, or potty train! and just for fun see if you can figure out any of the following puzzles, which also come from the farmers' almanac (see answers below).
