I know I’ve said it a million times this month,  but I love Halloween!  I also love trivia and knowing weird facts that other people don’t know(it’s a sickness I’m sure) so I thought what better way to write another Halloween related post than to post the Top 10 Phobias Related to Halloween (at least the top 10 according to me)!




1.  Samhainophobia-  Samhain was an ancient Pagan festival of the dead and where what we know today as Halloween derived from…hence Samhainophobia=the fear of Halloween!


2.  Ailurophobia- Ailurophobia is the persistent, irrational fear of cats…so since I assume that black cats would definitely qualify Ailurophobia could be fear of back cats!


3.  Wiccaphobia-the fear of witch craft


4.  Paraskavedekatriaphobia –-fear of Friday the 13th  also Triskaidekaphobia-fear of the #13


5.  Coimetrophobia - Fear of cemeteries


6.  Coulrophobia-fear of clowns


7. Feretrophobia –fear of coffins (I think I have this)


8.  Hauntophobia –fear of haunted houses


9.  Hemophobia-fear of blood


10. Maskaphobia –-fear of masks


Thanks to for all the help!
