Friday the 13th – History
Do you suffer from friggatriskaidekaphobia – “the fear of Friday the 13th”?
Today, Friday the 13th occurs when the thirteenth day of a month falls on a Friday – duh! Superstitions people everywhere claim today is a day of bad luck and thank goodness we can only have up to three Friday the 13th’s a year. I don’t think I could handle anymore!
I am not a superstitious person. Today is just another day…unless…I’m flying. It’s a fact, I have somehow ended up on an airplane on 5 different Friday the 13th’s – and I’m still alive! I think today is just like any normal day – no difference. Knock on wood, don’t step on a crack, or walk under a ladder, throw some salt over your shoulder, and don’t let that black cat cross your path.
