There’ll be scary ghost stories and tales of the glories of Christmases long, long ago…
Man, ghost stories at Christmas. Can I live at your house, Andy Williams?
The only holiday ghost story at my house is A Christmas Carol–but then again, it’s pretty great. Victorianism and Christmas go together like eggnog and brandy, and what did Victorians love more than anything?
Don’t believe me? Well guess what: Dickens himself was a paranormal investigator-I’m dead serious, it’s a documented fact.
I can’t emphasize how much historical weirdness is in this article. It has:
- Queen Victoria Being Creepy
- Lincoln Attending a Séance
- Mourning Warehouses
- Spring-Heeled Jack
- The London Monster
- Trance Mediums Making Out With Clients
- Spirits From Beyond Calling for Women’s Suffrage
Check it out–or I’ll haunt you.
