Oh not again, Friday on the 13th!! Why is it believed to be unlucky??

The ‘unlucky day’ is upon us. The irrational fear of the number 13 has been given a scientific name "triskaidekaphobia", and on analogy to this the fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskevidekatriaphobia, we've got a fear of pronouncing the word!!

Some hotels will have no room 13, while a lot of tall buildings 'don't have' a 13th floor, jumping straight from 12 to 14. Some airlines also refuse to have a row 13 in their planes too.
