THE ORIGIN AND STIGMA OF FRIDAY THE 13TH

Among the superstitions that have lasted for decades, if not centuries, despite the evolution of modern science is Friday the 13th. The irrational fear of the number 13 is called ‘triskaidekaphobia’ or ‘Paraskevidekatriaphobia’ and some suggest that it’s linked to the idea that 12 is a number of perfection. Though not believed everywhere, people in the West consider Friday the 13th to be unlucky as they associate it with death and deceit.

It is not a rare phenomenon that 13 and Friday fall on the same day in the Gregorian calendar. It happens every year and sometimes even two or three times in the same year.
