← Back to: List of phobias


Paschaphobia is the fear of Easter. The fear is commonly triggered due to the fear of Easter bunnies (leporiphobia) and/or the holiness. It can also be triggered due to negative childhood experiences when celebrating Easter, like something in the Easter basket that can scare them or that they don't want, as well as eating hard-boiled eggs that they don't like. Sufferers would avoid celebrating Easter as well as not being in the atmosphere of celebration, while many would refuse to go to a church on or near Easter.
