Do You Suffer From Paraskavedekatriaphobia?

…if it look’s a little green and on the verge of falling off I’d call the doctor.¬† ūüôā

Paraskavedekatriaphobia, don’t worry it’s not that fatal, it’s the fear of Friday the 13th.

Now try saying that word with a boiled sweet in your mouth.

According to some religious folks, Friday¬†the 13th was the day Eve ate from the apple, the great¬†floods began,¬†and the fact that¬†Judas Iscariot¬†was ‚Äúthe 13th guest‚ÄĚ at the last supper means it’s just not a good day.

And there are other’s who agree with that. Take¬†Daz Baxter as an example. Back in 1976 he thought staying in bed¬†was a better life choice until his building collapsed on him.

Or Welshman Bob Renphrey, who’s crashed four¬†cars, fallen into a river and been laid off on previous¬†Friday 13th’s.

But if you’ve no fear of the date you can pick up some cheap flights, book a cheap wedding, or pick up a cheaper home. –¬† And if you can find one with¬†13 on the door it’s double the bargain.

With 10% of U.S folks avoiding it in any way they can, it leads to financial losses in excess of $800 million annually, as people avoid marrying, travelling and even working.

But for some it’s been a lucky time, take the Royal family for example, the Nazis dropped a bomb on Buckingham Palace back in September 1940,¬†but it didn’t go off.

So if you’re worried about the sky falling down today,¬†maybe you should go with the Italian tradition of¬†looking at the 17th instead as an unlucky time.

But whatever you’re doing, even if you’re staying in bed (thanks to the internet¬†and bedside WiFi) you can still pick up ‘Word Search¬†Trending Traffic’ at it’s lowest price.
