That’s often how phobias begin — a person is in a state of panic and whatever grabs his attention at that moment gets associated with fear.
Test your Halloween spirit by matching the phobia with its trigger:1) Arachnophobia 2) Blennophobia 3) Claustrophobia 4) Cucurbitophobia 5) Eisoptrophobia 6) Hemophobia 7) Phasmophobia 8) Samhainophobia 9) Triskaidekaphobia 10) Wiccaphobia
These correspond to the FEAR OF:a) Halloween b) spiders c) witches d) enclosed spaces e) slime f) the number 13 g) seeing oneself in a mirror h) blood i) ghosts j) pumpkins
