Today Is Our One And Only Friday The 13th [VIDEO]
Feel lucky today? No, that’s not a line from a Clint Eastwood movie, but way of saying today is Friday the 13th. And, if you’re superstitious, this is your banner year, because today is the one and only Friday the 13th of 2014.
The most Friday the 13ths you can have are three, and the least one, so we’re pretty “lucky” this year. Here’s more about our special day, according to Wikipedia:
“Triskaidekaphobia (from Greek tris meaning “3”, kai meaning “and”, deka meaning “10” and phobos meaning “fear” or “morbid fear”) is fear of the number 13 and avoidance to use it; it is a superstition and related to a specific fear of Friday the 13th, called paraskevidekatriaphobia (from Παρασκευή Paraskevi, Greek for Friday) or friggatriskaidekaphobia (after Frigg, the Norse goddess after whom Friday is named in English).”
