The only thing scary about today is Black Friday shopping. Now that will make you scream in terror.
So I went web-hunting aka surfing. I came across lots of 13 Facts About Friday the 13th so I am going to quote the best ones at least I think.
2. Yet, the Fear is Very Real...Now say that 10 times really fast!
So real that one scientific name wasn't enough. The fear of Friday the 13th is also called friggatriskaidekaphobia or paraskevidekatriaphobia.
Friggatriskaidekaphobia comes from Frigg, the Norse goddess of wisdom after whom Friday is named, and the Greek words triskaideka, meaning 13, and phobia, meaning fear. Paraskevidekatriaphobia is also derived from Greek: paraskeví translates as Friday, and dekatria is another way of saying 13.Seriously...try and pronounce that what looks like 10 syllable words.
10. And Research Suggests That it May Not be Unlucky After AllNow there's a surprise.
There is very little evidence to show that Friday the 13th is indeed an unlucky day. Many studies have shown that Friday the 13th has little or no effect on events like accidents, hospital visits, and natural disasters.
All in all, it's just another day and how can it be unlucky. My new foam memory pillow came this morning. It was left in front of a mirror, under a ladder, and a black cat walked bye. Of course, I pun.
How many of you think Friday the 13th is unlucky?
