Triskaidekaphobia

Pronouncing the “Tris” and “phobia” are relatively easy. It’s the syllables in between that cause many of us problems. It means the fear of the number 13. There are several theories about the origin of triskaidekaphobia. The earliest seems to point toward the “Code of Hammurabi” which goes back to 1780 BC. Ready for the rest of 2013? Bring it on! Have no fear!!
