    The fear of Friday the 13th is also as called paraskevidekatriaphobia.
    A greek word means
    Paraskev - Meaning Friday
    dekatreís - meaning Thirteen
    attached to phobía - meaning fear

    OMG. I never imagined there is so much significance on one day and date.

    Day and date is an artificial devision of infinite time by man for his convenience. That a particular time and date is auspicious is a widespread superstition in India in particular and many other Asian countries in general.
