Are you Paraskevidekatriaphobic?

When I decided to write a post about Friday the 13th I thought I'd include a few facts about why it's considered unlucky! we all know the religious significance about 13 around a table but as I read I started to freak myself out so much that I was scared I was going to create some sort of weird self fulfilling prophecy after all apparently "Friday 13th is unlucky for some. The risk of hospital admission as a result of a transport accident may be increased by as much as 52 percent. Staying at home is recommended"! See what I mean!

And did you know there is an actual phobia about Friday 13th it has a name and everything! — Paraskevidekatriaphobics — people afflicted with a morbid, irrational fear of Friday the 13th!

I myself have a fear of saying Paraskevidekatriaphobia! Well it's not exactly easy is it? Not quite as difficult as saying Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (a small town with a big name in Wales, just in case you didn't know) but its up there!

Anyway in light of all this I have decided that I am going to declare Friday 13th a good luck day! Although I won't be doing anything to tempt fate like walking under a ladder while crossing a black cats path but I don't often do that anyway!


How do you feel about Friday 13th? Are you Paraskevidekatriaphobic? Or do you think it's just another day?

Just noticed I had 13 page view yesterday! Should I be worried? I mean apart from the fact I only had 13 views!
