Are you hiding in your home today because it’s Friday the thirteenth? Hmm—
paraskevidekatriaphobia (fear of Friday the 13th)
Would you board Flight 666 to Hel?
“The sixth day of the week and the number 13 both have foreboding reputations said to date from ancient times. It seems their inevitable conjunction from one to three times a year (there will be two such occurrences in 2013, exactly 13 weeks apart) portends more misfortune than some credulous minds can bear. According to some sources it’s the most widespread superstition in the United States today. Some people refuse to go to work on Friday the 13th; some won’t eat in restaurants; many wouldn’t think of setting a wedding on the date.” (Source: http://urbanlegends.about.com/cs/historical/a/friday_the_13th.htm)
