Y98 LISTENERS: Our contest line has changed! Missouri – (314) 531-9898 | Illinois – (618) 397-9898
By Paul Cook

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?”
