Superstitious? Just don’t like the number 13? Are You A Triskaidekaphobic ?

imageAfter going online to renew my VA. license plates I came upon this and had to laugh.

People who have a true fear associated with the number 13 are called Triskaidekaphobics. Even without the phobia, many people just don’t like the number 13 and would rather avoid it if possible. Avoiding the number 13 can be traced back to medieval times.

  • Witches’ covens are associated with having thirteen members
  • Streets or housing estates in several countries skip the house number 13
  • Some hotels avoid a floor 13 due to the universal superstition of bad luck
  • Friday the 13th is considered for some to be the most unlucky day possible. The day inspired a popular horror film franchise.

The Virginia DMV has an option to keep you from having a #13 on your license tag. Avoid "13" on Your Decal—Renew for Two or Three Years. If your vehicle registration is up for renewal this year, and you renew for one year, then you will display the number 13 on your car’s tags. Superstitious? Just don’t like the number 13? Avoid it and save money by renewing your tag for two or even three years. You can renew  here online.
