Fun Fact November 17, 2021.
Winter is coming and that’s a bad thing if you are cryophobic. Cryophobia is the fear of the cold, or cold things. Cryo is a combination form meaning icy cold or frost. You may have heard of cryogenics. A similar phobia is frigophobia. Fridge from the Latin word for cold, frigus. Here in the US frigophobia is virtually nonexistent. While still rare in other countries, it seems to be a culturally-related phobia in Chinese populations in Asia. Whether cryophobic or frigophobic, winter is not your favorite time of year and you may even have a aversion to cold things or even cold food. I wonder if that includes ice cream. I don’t think I could be a frigophobic, I love ice cream. Listen to the podcast here; https://theriver953.com/lonnies-fun-fact/
