Beware readers! July 13, 2018 is, as considered by some, an ominous day! Why? Well because it’s a Friday! It is an age old superstition (taking roots in the Western culture) that anything that can go wrong, does on Friday the 13th. It is the second of this year, the earlier occurred in April 13th.

The fear runs so deep that it is an actual phobia for some, with a name that is a tongue twister –paraskevidekatriaphobia! Apparently, the myth took its roots because it is believed that Jesus was crucified on a Friday and there were 13 people in the Upper Room while it happened. Scared yet?
