Chrysophobia (from Greek chrysos, "golden yellow") is fear of the color orange. This fear often come about due to negative experiences involving the color orange, such as spilling orange juice onto their laptop. Sufferers would avoid seeing things that are orange, otherwise they may panic. Most chrysophobics would avoid being exposed to artificial lighting, so they tend to sleep the whole time when sun is down, while avoiding looking at the setting or rising sun.
Chrysophobia affects approximately 250,000 Americans.
