Today Marks Our First Friday The 13th Of 2013
If you’re superstitious, today is your day. It’s Friday the 13th, and the first one of the year. You may be even more superstitious about a Friday the 13th in 2013, maybe a few too many 13s for you. So, how many more do we have this year?
In 2012, we had three Friday the 13ths – the most you can have in one year. In 2013, we have two; today and December 13th.
Here’s more about the Friday the 13th phobia, according to livescience.com:
“If you’re not scared of Friday the 13th, you should be scared of the word used to describe those who are: friggatriskaidekaphobics. (An alternative, though just as tongue-twisty, word for the fear is “paraskevidekatriaphobia.”)
For a superstition, the fear of Friday the 13th seems fairly new, dating back to the late 1800s.”
Am I afraid or superstitious about Friday the 13th? No way, knock wood (if I can find wood, everything in our studio seems to be made of plastic).
