Probably it is static electricity shocks.In dry climates and if you use nylon clothing/chairs made of plastic etc you could get small shocks. To understand this try taking off your sweater in the night with all the lights off, you hear s and see sparkles,due to static electricity.To get over it walk bare foot on stone flooring or touch metal objects frequently to discharge the current.Most important do not get worried.
