Samhainophobia : phobia of HALLOWEEN
> An employee of London Dungeon whose main task is to scare visitors at the attraction has had to step back from his ‘acting’ role – because he is terrified of Halloween.
> Frankie Spires, 26, suffers from Samhainophobia – a rare condition which leaves people with a deep-seated fear of October 31.
> The affliction left Mr Spires, from Bromley, Kent, breaking out in cold sweats and with nausea in the days leading up to Halloween last year.
Yuk, this stinks! He is lucky to work with a very understanding management: they were figured something out and now assign Frankie duties away from the Halloween displays.
