Friday the 13th - The Most Widespread Superstition
Paraskevidekatriaphobics is the term for people afflicted with an irrational fear of Friday the 13th and according to phobia specialist (and coiner of the term paraskevidekatriaphobia) Dr. Donald Dossey, it's the most widespread superstition in the United States today. Some people refuse to go to work on Friday the 13th; some won't eat in restaurants; many wouldn't think of setting a wedding on that date.
How many Americans at the beginning of the 21st century suffer from this condition? According to Dossey, the figure may be as high as 21 million. If he's right, no fewer than eight percent of Americans remain in the grips of a very old superstition. Good things most of us aren't superstitious.
