Friday Five – Paraskevidekatriaphobia

Paraskevidekatriaphobia: from the Greek words Paraskeví (Friday), dekatreís (thirteen), and phobia (fear) – in other words, it’s the fear of Friday the 13th!

A persistent superstition based on the belief that Friday is an unlucky day combined with the belief that 13 is an unlucky number. It’s kind of like a double kick in the “you-know-whats”.
