While the holiday season is a happy time for most of us, some people are deathly afraid of the best parts of Christmas.
These are all real phobias:
Selaphobia – fear of flashing Christmas lights. Festivalisophobia – a phobia of the whole Christmas thing. Cyssanophobia – fear of kissing under the mistletoe. Ghabhphobia – fear of presents or gifts. And, perhaps the scariest of all, familiaphobia – fear of your family.
Interesting names. Who comes up with these “scientific names?”
