Since it’s Friday the 13th, I thought I’d share some Friday the 13th love! Hope you enjoy!
Fear of Friday the 13th one of the most popular myths in science is called paraskavedekatriaphobia
as well as friggatriskaidekaphobia.
Triskaidekaphobia is fear of the number 13
President Franklin D. Roosevelt would not travel on the 13th day of any month
and would never host 13 guests at a meal.
Napoleon and President Herbert Hoover were also triskaidekaphobic,
with an abnormal fear of the number 13
Ever wonder what the big deal is about this silly date?
We did. It turns out the history of Friday the 13th is complicated.
There are superstitions about Friday, superstitions about the number 13
which together seem to create the fear of Friday the 13th.
Most of these superstitions are rooted in religion
Well you can tell by the way I use my walk
I’m a machete man and I like to stalk
Some historians have claimed it was the day on which Eve bit the apple from the Tree of Knowledge,
the great flood began and the builders of the Tower of Babel
it is said that whoever turns a bed on a Friday
turns ships at sea.
babies born on a Friday were laid on the family Bible
I’m not nearly as afraid of Friday the 13th as I am of the people who are afraid of Friday the 13th
Do not start a new job or business on Friday the 13th, it will be followed by collapse or bankrupt
hope you have a great day!
thanks for stopping by!!
Don’t be superstitious. Nothing will happen on Friday the 13th that cannot happen on Saturday the 14th
