There will be only one of them this year. People will be getting all bent out of shape fearing something bad is gonna happen or bad luck will be upon them today.
If you are one of these people then you suffer from friggatriskaidekaphobia: Fear of Friday the 13th. Yes that is a word I found on the web today. I could never just make it up, much less spell it.
Frigga: The name of the Norse Goddess for whom Friday was named
and Triskaidekaphobia: Fear of the number 13.
Did you know that over 20 million people have this? Most will avoid any normal routine and stay in there homes. Many buildings will not have a 13th floor and a lot of airports do not have a 13th gate. Crazy, isn't it?
Ever since the 14th century this day has been considered unlucky. It has even been said Jesus that was crucified on a Friday. I don't know.
