It comes around every year. Some people anxiously watch their wall calendars waiting for it, and others notice it by accident during their daily routine. It's Friday the 13th, and it's here, much to the chagrin of the more superstitious among us.
National Geographic News says the source of fear over the dreaded number 13 stems from ancient Roman and Norse mythology, and that this old superstition has its place in our modern world, noting that many high rise buildings deliberately skip the 13th floor, hospitals frequently eschew room number 13, and many airports do not have a gate 13.
Where do you stand on observence of the dreaded date? Do you laugh it off? Or do you walk around looking for a four leaf clover or heads-up penny?
