If that’s a bit of a handful for ya you’ll find some easier things too. If you want you can just enjoy the picture and move on =D.
Here are a couple of short, ‘scary’ and ‘true’ stories I found on the internet. (If you’re planning on that headless bride costume, you should read the first short story… you can tell people a whole story behind the headlessness!)
There’s a bridge called “Covert’s Crossing” or “Covert’s Bridge” up in New Castle. A young couple had gotten married on Halloween. Around midnight, they were riding in a horse drawn carriage across the bridge at the same time a car was. The bridge was only one lane, so by the time they saw each other it was too late. Story has it that they crashed and the hubcap of the car flew off, decapitating the bride. The police never found her head or the body of the groom. Its been said that if you sit on the bridge on Halloween night around midnight, you can see the headless bride standing on some rocks in the river. They don’t know if she is looking for her head or her lost love.
Here’s one I heard on the radio from a woman who told her story about seeing a ghost, which is scary: A few years ago, the woman and her family had just moved to a new house somewhere in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. One night, her baby son was crying so she got out of bed and went to see him. Suddenly, the baby stopped crying. The woman knew that he must have fallen asleep so she went back to bed. A few hours later, the baby cried again, so she got up and went over to check again. As she opened the door to her son’s room, she saw a boy, about 6 or 7 years old, calming the baby down. When he saw the woman, he disappeared. The woman was shocked and later told her neighbours what happened. The neighbours already knew about the ghost and told her that there was a boy who died from an illness, about 80 years ago, and was buried under the exact place where her baby son’s room is.
Happy Halloween everyone!!
