Friggatriskaidekaphobia

My Mum suffered from tristadekaphobia (a fear of the number 13) but I think she suffered from friggatriskaidekaphobia which is a fear of Friday the 13th. She absolutely hated that day! She always said that on Friday the 13th she should never, ever get out of bed. I honestly don't see what all the fuss is about.

I know that some people take the fear of 13 really seriously. One house we lived in when I was a teenager was numbered 11A but in reality it was really supposed to be number 13. I guess whoever built the house had tristadekaphobia.

If you want to find out some interesting facts about Friday the 13th and why its considered unlucky you can go here on wiki or check here on about.com

Do you have a fear of the number 13 or of Friday the 13th?
