Definition: “13 (thirteen /??r?ti?n/) is the natural number following 12 and preceding 14. In spoken English, the numbers 13 and 30 are often confused. When carefully enunciated, they differ in which syllable is stressed: 13 Listeni/??r?ti?n/ vs. 30 /???rti/. However, in dates such as 1300 (“thirteen hundred”) or when contrasting numbers in the teens, such as 13, 14, 15, the stress shifts to the first syllable: 13 /???rti?n/.

Strikingly similar folkloric aspects of the number 13 have been noted in various cultures around the world: one theory is that this is due to the cultures employing lunar-solar calendars (there are approximately 12.41 lunations per solar year, and hence 12 “true months” plus a smaller, and often portentous, thirteenth month). This can be witnessed, for example, in the “Twelve Days of Christmas” of Western European tradition.[1]“(Wikipedia)
