The Silliest Phobias That Actually Exist


Phobias are fears of certain things. You can develop one after a traumatic experience or it can simply pop up one day and leave you scared. While some phobias are quite common and understandable, like fear of the heights, depth, etc, there are some pretty weird phobias out there. We won't question them; just have a good laugh and shake our heads. 

Selenophobia

The fear of the moon, or a phobia Remus Lupin has. Like any phobia, there are no explanations why people are scared of the moon. Maybe you're a werewolf, maybe you're scared of becoming one, maybe it makes you think about the deep secrets of the Universe...

Don't ask, I can't pronounce it either. What you need to know is that this is the phobia you have when you're scared of the number 666. You're probably tormented by horror movies or believe in the occult. Oh, well, this phobia is pretty much justified.

Alliumphobia

Guess who has this phobia? You're right: Dracula and other vampires! Oh, and people who don't want that garlic breath on their first date. All jokes aside, this is a legitimate phobia. There are people who adore the taste of garlic, and yet, there are some who can't stand garlic. Hmm, wonder if the second group has this phobia or it's the general disliking.

Venustraphobia

If you're a guy, or a girl, who's into women AND still single you might have this phobia. You know, it's when you're scared of pretty women. Yup, that's a thing. But, don't worry; you're probably too shy to approach a pretty lady. Chances to have this phobia are quite little.

Samhainophobia

Is Halloween your favorite holiday? Probably not if you're suffering from samhainophobia. Yes, this is a fear of Halloween. We get it, you're the type for family holidays like Christmas or Easter. Not a lot of people are into scary stuff. Spider web, crooked tombstones, and witches laughing? No thanks!

Panophobia

When you have panophobia, you're in a big trouble. Why? Well, it's because you're scared of everything. Panophobia is a constant fear of the unknown evil. Wow, it must be hard for those guys to leave the house. This is a clear example of when phobias can be life-endangering.

Anatidaephobia

Anatidaephobia is one of those ridiculous phobias. It's the fear of being watched by a duck. A DUCK! How can something so cute be terrifying? Just look at that long beak, fluffy feather, and funny legs! Yeah, there's nothing weird about that, right? Now you can relax and don't mind that duck behind you, watching you with judgment in its eyes.

Deipnophobia

Deipnophobia means you're scared of dinner parties. Frankly, we get why one should feel scared. So many forks, spoons, plates, glasses... How do you use them?! And what's with that polite chit chat during the meal? Why can't people eat in silence and enjoy their food? Frozen TV dinner for one sounds juuust fine.

Pentheraphobia

How many of you married women have a lovely relationship with your mother-in-law? The answer may not shock us because it's not a large number. Mother-in-laws can be tough to handle. If yours is a scary one, you might have pentheraphobia- the fear of monster-in-law. Ahem, we mean mother-in-love.
