Chionophobia: The Fear of Snow

Chionophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of snow. This phobia can be caused by a traumatic snowstorm or like other phobias you may not know exactly what triggered the fear. Most people with phobias just know that they have them and never really know why.

This is a phobia where you can separate yourself from the fear, but it would involve moving. If you live in an area where there is lots of snow every year then you may want to consider moving somewhere it doesn’t snow very much or at all.

Phobias sometimes sound funny, but they can become serious medical conditions so don’t hesitate on getting help because you’re afraid of being laughed at. Phobias disrupt lives and should always be taken seriously.

If you suffer from Chionophobia, please share your story.
