Wiccaphobia: The Fear of Witches and Witchcraft

Letters On Demonology and WitchcraftWiccaphobia is the irrational and persistent fear of witches or witchcraft.  Accounts of witches and witchcraft date back to the 1400’s and I’m sure accounts of this phobia began around the same time. 

Witches and witchcraft always get portrayed in a negative light and this is where this phobia arises. This phobia may also be triggered if someone has a negative experience with a witch or witchcraft.

Those who have Wiccaphobia may also have Samhainophobia, the fear of Halloween because Halloween is often associated with witches and witchcraft.
Do you suffer from Wiccaphobia?  Please share your story.  How was it triggered and how does it affect your life?
