FORGET black cats, witchcraft and horror stories - Angela and Sunny Jacob reckon Friday the 13th is the luckiest day there is.

It's pretty hard to argue, too.

The couple today celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary, 11 years after they first locked eyes on each other across a crowded Ipswich room, also on a Friday the 13th.

And it doesn't stop there.

On the same day, Angela's mother had life-saving heart surgery and came through with flying colours.

Fast forward a couple of years and the Ipswich couple stumbled across what would become their first house together and you guessed it - it was at number 13.

The owner of a Brassall florist business, which she bought 13 months after first starting work there, said she didn't know what all the bad luck fuss was about.

"It's our lucky number," Mrs Jacob said.

"Everything good that happens for us has something to do with number 13.

"It's really bizarre but it hasn't brought us any bad luck, that's for sure."

To celebrate their decade of wedded bliss, the Jacobs will celebrate their Black Friday anniversary by returning to the Brisbane city hotel where they spent their wedding night.

True to form the couple hadn't once thought about the significance of what many others considered to be a cursed date.

"We hadn't even realised it," Mrs Jacob said.

"Neither of us are superstitious at all, otherwise I guess we wouldn't have got married on that day."

In a final twist to this left of centre tale, Mrs Jacob revealed that the party where the couple first met was a cast and crew after party for the Ipswich Orpheus Chorale.

"Interestingly, our choir is doing the same performance this year as they did when we met on that first Friday the 13th," she said.

So what night is the production playing this year?

You guessed it - Friday the 12th.

Well, almost.
