Friggatriskaidekaphobia - The fear of Friday 13th

The fear of Friday the 13th has been called friggatriskaidekaphobia (Frigga is the name of the Norse goddess for whom "Friday" is named, and triskaidekaphobia means fear of the number thirteen), or paraskevidekatriaphobia a concatenation of the Greek words Paraskevi, meaning "Friday", and dekatreis, meaning "thirteen") attached to phobia. In Spanish-speaking countries, instead of Friday, Tuesday the 13th is considered a day of bad luck. The Greeks also consider Tuesday (and especially the 13th) to be an unlucky day. Tuesday is considered to be dominated by the influence of Ares (Mars), the god of war.
