Not merely Triskaidekaphobia... Paraskavedekatriaphobia

That's right kids... it is Friday the 13th.

Those of you with paraskavedekatriaphobia can stay inside.
(a word that is derived from the concatenation of the Greek words Παρασκευή, δεκατρείς, and φοβία, meaning Friday, thirteen, and phobia respectively; alternative spellings include paraskevodekatriaphobia or paraskevidekatriaphobia)

Lest you believe that Friday the 13th is safe:

Born on Friday the 13th
Fidel Castro
Julia Louis-Dreyfus
Mary-Kate and Ashley
and Peter Davison (well, unlucky for you if you were a big Tom Baker fan)

It's 7:30am... I've been up since 4am.. This is all I can come up with.
