What is cherophobia?
Cherophobia is the fear of gaiety, happiness, joyfulness or rejoicing. The origin of the word chero is Greek (meaning to rejoice; gaiety or happiness) and phobia is Greek (meaning fear).
Puritanism is said to be the fear that someone else may be happy.

Patrick McWilliams, Puritanism is a "my way or the highway" belief in God which is why it went the way of the Dodo!...Whatever church you attend should be SCRIPTURAL & speak to you! If it's not Scriptural it's a waste of time & if it doesn't speak to you you'll lose interest!...THOSE are my criteria for choosing a church!

Irma Rivera, I agree When something good happens I always feel like the reason is because something bad is coming. Maybe I have this phobia but it never disappoints so maybe it's not a fear at all. I take it more karma can't be happy cause bad things happen

Ray Reason, being happy is wonderful even if it ends next week. If not for happiness how would we ever know sadness. The old saying better to have loved than not too for the joy you would never know if you didn't bother to be happy or in love..

Puritanism is censorious moral believes, specially about self-indulgence and sex which is totally different from cherophonia!!!

Cherophonia is the fear of feeling happy thinking that something bad is going to happens after the happiness event!!!
