Triskaidekaphobia today

Triskaidekaphobia (tris-kye-dek-uh-foh-bee-uh) is an exaggerated or illogical fear of the number 13.

Did you know that  a Friday the 13th will occur in any month in which the first day is a Sunday?

Did you know the origin  that on Friday October 13, 1307 King Philip IV of France arrested all the Knights Templar and had them executed?

Did you know that four of the eleven films in the Friday the 13th series, including the most recent (a remake of the first), were released on a Friday the 13th?

Would you rank Friday the 13th as the number one superstition before "Walking under a ladder", "having a black cat cross your path", "breaking a mirror"?

Have you experienced anything bad on the Friday 13th?

Why do some people have anxiety over this date that make self-fulfillling prophecies? Many will not schedule any meetings,interviews, appointments and choose to remain at home.

Have you ever had a closing on Friday the 13th?

Kathleen,

I'll confess that it would make me a little nervous to have a closing scheduled for Friday 13th. It's never happened yet, but if it did you can bet I'd be checking and double checking everything.

Virginia, Thanks for stopping by to comment. Over the 30plus years we have had several closings on Friday the 13th and they were ALL super celebrations. For my clients, they felt lucky that they  had purchased a home for their family and saved thousands of dollars using our Certified Exclusive Buyer agent team services.

GINNY, I have not forgotten to call you but this past week was so hectic with both my careers. I will see how this week goes, I know I am committed for tomorrow and Wednesday. How does your Thurs at 2ish look?

The 13th has always been a great day for me, too. In fact I ♥ EVERYDAY.

So who's superstitious? A black cat ran across my trail today and I'm still here to write about it. Thanks for the history lesson.

Thanks for the tidbits of Friday the 13th history.  I was born on a Friday the 13th in the month of June!  I don't recall having any bad luck on account of Friday the 13th in general or for the fact of coming into the world on the superstitious day!
