Triskaidekaphobia

Are you superstitious or for you is this just a lot of unproven bunkum about Friday 13th?

There are some almost unpronounceable words to describe this particular phobia Ė
friggatriskaidekaphobia, paraskevidekatriaphobia or triskaidekaphobia, but what do you think of the superstition surrounding Friday 13th? Does this date hold any fear for you and if so why?

13 round a table?

Walking under ladders?

Hotels without 13th floor?

Seems to be plenty of superstitious people around.

Never gave the date a thought - but it would not have worried me anyway.

Re: Triskaidekaphobia

I think if we are superstitious, itís our motherís fault.

My mother was and lím afraid itís left me Ďsuperstitionly damagedí!

I donít mind Friday the 13th though but if l enter a house through the front door, l wonít leave by the back door.

When l put knives in the dishwasher, l check that they arenít crossed. (Iím not OCD!)
