Here we are only two weeks into 2012, and already our first Friday the 13th is here. This is the first of three Friday the 13ths.  We'll have two more this year: one in April and the last one in July.

Are you superstitious? Do you fear Friday the 13th? According to Wikipedia:

"In the Gregorian calendar, this day occurs at least once, but at most three times a year. Any month's 13th day will fall on a Friday if the month starts on a Sunday.

The fear of Friday the 13th is called friggatriskaidekaphobia (Frigga being the name of the Norse goddess for whom "Friday" is named and triskaidekaphobia meaning fear of the number thirteen).
