Paraskevidekatriaphobia Anyone?

Friday the 13th has safely passed for me at least one day ago, so now it is safe to share this information. This little blurb comes to you from USA Today.

“The last Friday the 13th was July 13, 2012, about 14 months ago. It’s average occurrence is once every 212 days. If you suffer from paraskevidekatriaphobia — the fear of Friday the 13th — all is not lost. Today is, ironically, Defy Superstition Day, where you can choose to break those superstitions that you have been living with most, or all, of your life.”

If you just have a general fear of the number 13, this is a phobia with a difference. That is called Triskaidekaphobia.
