The ninth day of the last month of the year

The ninth day of the last month of the year is considered to be an extremely unlucky time, according to Grafton in his Manuel (a sixteenth-century book of unlucky days as determined by professional star-gazers).

In Mexico, the healing virgin-goddess Tonantzin is honored on this day with an annual festival called the Fiesta of the Mother of Health.

Looking through the history of December 9th, Jim Morrison was arrested on this day for indecent exposure and removed from stage, then in 1987 Larry Bird ended his streak of 59 consecutive free throws,  and in 2005 "Brokeback Mountain" starring Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal was released... yeah, pretty unlucky day for entertainment I would say.  Let's see, here is December 9th, 2016 movie releases (Bet They All Stink):
