Today is Friday the 13th, 2013. A few too many 13s for you? Well don't worry, this is the last one of the year. So, what about next year?

In 2012, we had three Friday the 13ths - the most you can have in one year. In 2013, we had two; the first in September and today.

Here's more about the Friday the 13th phobia, according to

"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."

As for 2014, we're in luck, only one Friday the 13th, and it's in June. So if you're superstitious, you have over six months before you have to worry about it, knock wood.
