Friday the 13th...Feeling Lucky?

For some, 13 is an unlucky number. Many believe the number 13 will bring them bad luck. If people truly believe this then 2012 has not been their year and could send some scurrying for cover because 2012 is extremely unlucky given that there are three Friday the 13th this year. The first one was in January, then April, then today. For three to occur in one year is highly unusual, but I beg to differ because it also happened in 2009.

Fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskavedekatriaphobia or friggatriskaidekaphobia and is one of the most common fears people have. Triskaidekaphobia is fear of the number 13.

In case you are one that fears the 13th, I suggest that remain in bed, not answer the phone or door because you just don't know what might be lurking about.

Happy Friday!!!

Luckily I am not superstitious. I always joke about what could happen bad on Friday the 13th, but I don't really think there is anything to it. Hopefully you have a good Friday regardless of what the calendar says! :)

Some good quiz answers there, if only I could pronounce them, let alone remember them.

Happy Friday 13th.
