The fear of the number 13. It originates from the story of Judas. Why are we fearful of Friday the 13th? Because Friday is the day of the week that Jesus was crucified. All of us know of accidents that occurred on a Friday the 13th. The one that comes to my mind was a convoy traveling about 200 miles. The man in charge was in a hurry to get home to catch is wife fooling around. We had four accidents because of his haste and disobeying the rules we had.
Fear of Friday the 13th is also known as friggatriskaidekaphobia.
Might be a good day to stay in and watch Friday the 13th movies.
