Do You Suffer From Paraskavedekatriaphobia?

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

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 “the 13th guest” 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.
