I have no fear of the 13th, however, I did keep my black cats (2 of them) contained Hallow's Eve/Halloween.

Thanks, Barb xo

The fear of a Friday that falls on the 13th day of a month is thought to be the most widely held superstition in the English-speaking world. It’s so common that two distinct words have been coined to describe it: paraskevidekatriaphobia; and friggatriskaidekaphobia.
These tongue-twisting terms can lend a bogus scientific cachet to an irrational belief, conjuring up white coats and clipboards. And sure enough, there have been studies. Serious studies.
Im not a scaredy cat and for sure Im no Friggatriskadekaphobic . Hope your Friday the 13th is Fun. So have a couple of glasses of wine and repeat those two words.

13 is my lucky number! I was born on the 13th as well as married on the 13th. And I also adore black cats! Thanks Barb.
