Along with their ability to sing along to every single one of her hits and school shade-throwers (including John Mayer) on the fact that Taylor Swift is one of the highest-earning musicians in the biz, hardcore Swifties are surely familiar with the singer’s love of the number 13. Her fondness for the digit stems from the fact that the songstress was born on December 13, 1989, a little known detail which pops up from time to time in various ways.
For instance, she writes the number on her hand while on tour and two of her albums, Fearless and 1989, have exactly 13 songs on their track listing. Now, Swift has been spied taking her unusual ritual to Instagram, with eagle-eyed fans taking note.
Just take a look at the post she shared below showing mad love for Lorde’s new tune…

Need further proof that this is a *thing*? Here you go…
She’s done it to her bestie Ed…
…and Kings of Leon too.
Rachel Platten has been 13-ed.
And just for good measure, here’s one more.
Chalk it up to just another quirky Swift-ism to add to the growing list of reasons she’s so endearing to her fans.
