There is a buzz going round Twitter & Facebook
about an event that only happens every 823 years

Sorry to disappoint you all but in fact it happens
about every 5 to 10 years!

Here is the content of an email I received from a normally reliable source:

“Money bags for me!!!
I’m not superstitious, but this year July has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays.
This happens once every 823 years. This is called money bags.
So, copy this to your status and money will arrive within 4 days…based on Chinese Feng Shui.

THIS IS THE ONLY TIME WE WILL SEE AND LIVE THIS EVENT
