X is for Xenophilia ~ A to Z 2015 Challenge

X is for Xenophilia



1.an attraction to foreign peoples, cultures, or customs.

In researching what I would blog about for the letter "X" for the A to Z Challenge I discovered this wonderful website with inspiring words from A to Z. Talk about synchronicity! How cool is that! Check it out...


That's when I discovered the word, Xenophilia.

  1. Thank you for sharing the link. I saved the list of positive words in my computer.
    Do you consider yourself to be xenophilic?

  2. Very clever post Donna, excellent to read.

  3. I like xenophilia more than xenophobia. I love learning about other cultures. :)

  4. Wonderful word and post! I like xenophilia!

  5. I didn't know the there was a word that is the opposite of xenophobia. Makes sense though.
