Are You a Triskaidekaphobiac? Then Stay Home on Friday the Thirteenth
by San Jose REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe
Fear of the number 13 is Triskaidekaphobia. January 13 and October 13 of 2017 will both fall on Fridays.
Ever since Jesus Christ was betrayed by Judas Iscariot, one of his twelve disciples who attended the Last Supper, 13 at dinner or for any group was considered unlucky. Some folks will even set up two separate tables of 6 and 7 people to avoid being a group of thirteen.
Other people, like my brother who was born on the 13th, consider 13 their lucky number instead of an unlucky one.
Many buildings are built without a thirteenth floor-the elevator simply goes from 12 to 14, skippping 13 altogether.
Keep in mind a Friday is still a Friday, which for most folks starts their weekend which is a good thing.
