    Friday,the 13

    The fear of Friday the 13th is called friggatriskaidekaphobia, frigga, meaning "Friday" and triskaidekaphobia, or paraskevidekatriaphobia, a word derived from the concatenation of the Greek words Paraskeví (?????????, meaning "Friday"), and dekatreís (?????????, meaning "thirteen"), attached to phobía (?????, from phóbos, ?????, meaning "fear"). The word was derived in 1911 and first appeared in a mainstream source in 1953.
    yeah its today (at least it is already in my country)
    do you believe in this superstition, that you will have more bad luck on this day?

    just a fact of wikipedia:

    There are indications that there are more accidents on Fridays than average weekdays (irrespective of the date) probably because of alcohol consumption. Therefore it is less relevant for this purpose to compare Friday the 13th with, say, Tuesday the 13th.

    i personally dont believe in it
    i just get nervous of people sayint, they WILL have bad luck ^^

    Someone who believes the superstition is bound to pay attention to even the smallest things that happen to them on this day, so they seemingly have more "bad luck".

    I was at my mates house today, and he has a black cat >_> No bad luck happened to me, and nothing ever will. It's all bullshit imo.

    Agreed, it's fucking retarded actually. When I traveled with Delta to Harrisburg, almost a month ago, my mom and I were assigned the row 14, after sitting there I noticed that the plane had no number 13, it jumped straight from 12 to 14. At the time I was doubting whether it was a joke or not.

    I've had the same thing, only it was a hotel with no 13th floor.

    imo friday the 13th is all bs. imo its something to blame for all our mistakes. for example, omygod i tripped.. oh it might be friday the 13th. as you see this person blames it all on the day, rather than him/herself not watching where she is going.

    It's not a joke. It's for those people who have extreme fears of the number 13 (Triskaidekaphobia). Some people have mental breakdowns, and that's not good for business.
