Are You Afraid Of Friday The 13th? We Dare You To Attend The Nacogdoches Texas Film Festival!


Friggatriskaideaphobia (pronounced FRE-ga-TRISK-uh-DECK-uh-PHO-b-UH) is one of two official words that describes the fear of the number 13!  Let’s just say the other word begins with a “P”, and I cannot spell it, let alone pronounce it, correctly. 

By the way, the Nacogdoches Chamber of Commerce kicks off  the Nacogdoches Texas Film Festival this Friday, April 13th starting at 6:00 P.M.  Don’t miss the second feature of “Ghoul’s Night Out” with one of my personal favorites, the “Rocky Horror Picture Show”, beginning at 9:00 P.M. at Hotel Fredonia.  For more details


Are you aware of some of the folklore associated with Friday the 13th?:

  • It’s been said that there are 13 steps that lead to the gallows (EEK), and 13 knots of a hangman’s noose (YIKES).
  • In 1970, Apollo 13 was the 13th mission to be launched from Pad 39 (13×3).  It left the launching pad on April 13th at 1313 hours.  The mission aborted due to an explosion.
  • When was the last time you exited the elevator on the 13th floor?
  • Remember the Costa Concordia cruise ship that partially sank off the coastline of Italy this year?  The date — FRIDAY, January 13th.
