Fear of Halloween

I just learned this and thought I would share it. Did you know there is a diagnosed fear of Halloween?
Main Entry: samhainophobia (pronounced sow-in-o-phobia)
Part of Speech: noun
Definition: a fear of Halloween
Etymology: Irish Samhain 'All Saints' Day'
from dictionary.com
The name stems from the Celtic New Year, Samhain, which falls on October 31, the last day of summer.
