Triskaidekaphobia and Other Superstitions

Friday the 13th and nothing too bad has happened, yet. Maybe the other shoe will drop, or is that my Triskaidekaphobia taking hold. Fear of the number 13 is actually a phobia and to a greater or lesser extent many people have it. Is it really that surprising that so many superstitions infect our lives. They are ancient and often have pagan or tribal histories. In honor of Friday the 13th, the BBC History Magazine offers to explain ten common superstitions that, sometimes, we don’t even realize why we act on them. What does this have to do with public relations? Not much, but the timing is great to post this on our blog at the end of a quiet Friday! Besides what other time could we use the word Triskaidekaphobia?
