The fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskavedekatriaphobia or friggatriskaidekaphobia. The fear of number 13 is called triskaidekaphobia.

This fear of Friday the 13th affects the life of a number of people. Thinking that this will bring them bad luck. Others are afraid to get up from bed, go out, do some hard work, or even use sharp objects to avoid mishaps.
