Boo! ...it's Friday the 13th, are you nervous?

...here's wishing you a Happy Friday the 13th, 2010!!

According to CBC and London's Daily Mirror there are over 60 million people around the world that have treacherous thoughts about Friday the 13th and will even avoid work or driving, is that you? ...and you're probably terrified of black cats and cracks in the sidewalk too? ;)


The Greek term Triskaidekaphobia is explained as - 'tris' means '3', kai means 'and', and deka means '10' which sums it up as a fear of the number 13 and it's related specifically to the day Friday the 13th.
Apparently, if the first of the month begins on a Sunday it will be followed by this 'unlucky' day.

Personally, I'm not superstitious. Yes, I'm aware breaking a mirror or walking under a ladder could invite trouble so, I don't chase it but, if it happens it happens. I'm not one to live my life in fear of superstitions and quite frankly, I fear finding your hair in my food, much worse!
