Being afraid of Halloween has a word

There are names for all kinds of phobias, worth mentioning now when Halloween weekend is here. Recently there have been a lot of media reports on killer clowns scaring the living daylight out of people. There's actually a word for being afraid of them: Coulrophobia. But did you know there is a word for being afraid of Halloween itself? Samhainophobia. Awesome word.

Happy Halloween, ya'll!
