#phobia

Top Definition
This is fear of the number 13. It goes back to the time of Christ where there were 13 at the last supper and is a surprisingly common fear. Hotels rarely have a 13th floor and many people will not be part of a group of 13; Winston Churchill, for example, refused to dine at a table with 13 guests.

A phobia of fire.

Originates from the Greek words pyr/pur meaning fire and phobos meaning a deep fear.

A person with Pyrophobia may be scared of anything from birthday candles to lit cigarettes to stoves.

The sufferer may develop a version of OCD that involves constantly checking that stoves and burners are turned off, or that their smoke alarms are working perfectly.

Usually caused by a traumatic event such as a house fire, especially in childhood.

The person may be affected with many symptoms such as sweating, headaches, irregular heartbeat, dizziness, nausea, loss of breath, dry mouth, or fainting around fire or, in more extreme cases, the smell of smoke.
