In honor of the date...

Here are 13 Facts about Friday the 13th.

Things I learned from this article:

1. I share a birthday with infamous train robber Butch Cassidy.
2. I do not suffer from paraskavedekatriaphobia, friggatriskaidekaphobia, or triskaidekaphobia.
3. Woodrow Wilson and I have the same lucky number.

Hmm...good to know.

Happy Friday the 13th, everyone!

Never thought it was unlucky, my mom was born on a Friday the 13th.

I wasn't born on a Friday, but I was born on the 13th so I find any 13th to be lucky!

My first baby was born on Friday the 13th, so it's our lucky day. :-)

Technical names for phobias always make me think of Lucy and Charlie Brown... :)

Me too, Christina. And now I'm trying to think of which is the fear of everything ...

Charlie Brown: THAT'S IT!

It's pantophobia:

Lucy: Are you afraid of responsibility? If you are, then you have hypengyophobia.
Charlie Brown: I don't think that's quite it.
Lucy: How about cats? If you're afraid of cats, you have ailurophasia.
Charlie Brown: Well, sort of; but I'm not sure.
Lucy: Are you afraid of staircases? If you are, then you have climacaphobia. Maybe you have thalassophobia. This is fear of the ocean, or gephyrobia, which is the fear of crossing bridges. Or maybe you have pantophobia. Do you think you have pantophobia?
Charlie Brown: What's pantophobia?
Lucy: The fear of everything.
Charlie Brown: That's it!
