Does anyone suffer from Festivalisophobia (fear of Christmas) or other Christmas related phobias?
My name is Hannah and I'm a features writer for SWNS. We write stories for national newspapers and women's magazines in the UK. I'm currently looking to do a story with a woman with a fear of Christmas. This could be one of the following or something that you feel I haven’t mentioned. Festivalisophobia - the whole of xmas Selaphobia - flashing xmas lights Meleagrisophobia - Christmas turkey Ligyrophobia - crackers going BANG! Cyssanophobia - kissing under the mistletoe Syngenesophobia - relatives & relations Ghabhphobia - presents or gifts Phagophobia - eating It would be a sensitively written piece, which would be read back to you before anything was printed, and a great way to raise awareness of the condition and how difficult it can be to live with. It is also a way to raise awareness of charities or support groups and you would be paid a fee. If anyone has any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.
