The fear of Friday the 13th has been called friggatriskaidekaphobia (Frigga being the name of the Norse goddess for whom "Friday" is named in English and triskaidekaphobia meaning fear of the number thirteen), or paraskevidekatriaphobia a concatenation of the Greek words Paraskeví (Παρασκευή, meaning "Friday"), and dekatreís (δεκατρείς, meaning "thirteen") attached to phobía (φοβία, from phóbos, φόβος, meaning "fear"). The latter word was derived in 1911 and first appeared in a mainstream source in 1953.

Yes it's Friday the 13th but every contract that I signed today I wrote 06-14-2014...
Yes I'm a bit superstitious..
In fact when I see the number 666, I make the sign of the cross and plead the blood of Christ...
I will not pick up a penny if it's not heads up and make a wish if it's heads up...
