Happy Friday the 13th! :friday13:
From History.com:
Friday the 13th

Long considered a harbinger of bad luck, Friday the 13th has inspired a late 19th-century secret society, an early 20th-century novel, a horror film franchise and not one but two unwieldy terms—paraskavedekatriaphobia and friggatriskaidekaphobia—that describe fear of this supposedly unlucky day.

What’s so unlucky about the number 13?
By Barbara Maranzani // September 13, 2013

Researchers estimate that at least 10 percent of the U.S. population has a fear of the number 13, and each year the even more specific fear of Friday the 13, known as paraskevidekatriaphobia, results in financial losses in excess of $800 million annually, as people avoid marrying, traveling or in the most severe cases, even working. But what’s so unlucky about the number 13, and how did this numerical superstition get started?

Friday The 13th: Why Are People Afraid Of The Day? — 5 Things About Triskaidekaphobia
Jason Brow, Sports Editor
July 13, 2018

5. The number 13 terrifies even the master of horror. Don’t think triskaidekaphobia is serious? The number 13 scares Stephen King, the man whose nightmares have kept people up at night for decades. “I always take the last two steps on my back stairs as one, making 13 into 12 (there were, after all, 13 steps on the English gallows – up until 1900 or so – and executions were traditionally carried out on Fridays),” he wrote in 1984, a year with three Friday the 13ths.
