Have you ever heard the term “Hylophobia?” I’m betting the majority of you haven’t – and yet it describes a fear that just about all of us grew up with.
What does it mean, you ask?
Hylophobia is the fear of woods or forests.
Yes, I told you that you probably suffer from it. Let’s be honest: the woods are creepy and unpredictable. You have no idea what lurks out there and if you’ve been brought up on ungodly amounts of horror movies since you were a kid, you already know what happens in the forest and it’s never good.
Let’s run down a list of why you probably suffer from Hylophobia, shall we?
The woods are dark and terrifying.
There are weird people lurking out there.
You might have to knock on the door at a house like this for “help.”
And finally, you might run into something like this.
So let’s just agree that this will definitely NOT be in your future, okay?
Stay out of the woods! And I will, too
