I love Halloween but it also gives me the heebie jeebies, creepy crawlies, and scares the bejeebers out of me. Ever since I was a kid, I always watched the old monster movies with my Dad who LOVED spooky movies. When I cannot sleep, every once in a while I will hear a noise downstairs and my thoughts instantly go to the following things that still scare me a little bit:
I love the "spooky" episodes of television shows, new and old. My favorites have to be Ghost of A. Chantz by the Dick Van Dyke Show!
Living in Chicago, we have our share of GHOST STORIES! The two most haunted places, Bachelors Grove Cemetery and Resurrection Cemetery are VERY close to my house. I grew up with the stories and believe them to be true. I used to camp in the forest preserve that is Bachelor's Grove when I was a girl scout and we would always scare each other at night. We even made etchings of the tombstones in the haunted cemetery. Are you kidding me? LOL!
Resurrection Cemetery is the home of RESURRECTION MARY, the story of a young girl who was killed on the way home from a dance. She was buried at this cemetery and legend has it that she hitch hikes along the rode outside in a white dress. The iron gates of the cemetery have hand marks which are believed to be that of Res Mary although the owners have tried to de-bunk those stories for years.
I have also had many things happen to me and people in my life which makes me 100% convinced that ghosts really do exist! Not just on Halloween but every day!
I hope you have a very Happy Halloween and make it safely on to November 1st! BOO! LOL!
