Happy Friday The 13th

A Friday occurring on the 13th day of any month is considered to be a day of bad luck in English, German and Portuguese-speaking cultures around the globe. Similar superstitions exist in some other traditions. In Greece and Spain, for example, Tuesday the 13th takes the same role.

The fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskavedekatriaphobia or friggatriskaidekaphobia, and is a specialized form of triskaidekaphobia, a fear of the number thirteen.
