November 19, 2019 19 By William Hollis


my friends there welcome to another
episode of ghost stories in folklore well my friends these Christmas I am
bringing back an old Victorian tradition of telling ghost stories at Christmas
time in the next few videos I will be sharing with you 21 ghost tears and what
I would like you to do is leave a comment down in the comment section of
the title of your favorite ale from each video for now let’s get started with the
first seven ghost stories and folklore from Christmas this one is entitled a
chilling ghost in my eyes a few Christmases ago we were invited to stay
with their friends at their beautifully restored house my daughter’s room was
the sweetest just down the corridor from ours
it had candy colored teacups on the wallpaper an adorable four posters
single bed and a lovely little ensuite the bathroom
the first night we all slept soundly replete with food wine and gossip on the
second night we all retired slightly earlier I awoke around 2:00 a.m. seen a
light flickering I walked down the corridor to my daughter’s room she was
in there wide-awake watching a video on my laptop she too had a walk
it could not get back to sleep I closed a laptop tidied up the little bedroom
and straightened up the bed clothes I talked her back in and sat down on the
edge of her bed to stroke her hair as I said their house losing myself I
realized that the room felt rather chilly
despite the window it was my daughter’s eyes were closed as she was drifting off
I pulled up the blankets around her night darling I whispered night-night
love me she replied and half opened her eyes suddenly her pupils a widening fear
tears sprang out of nowhere mommy what’s wrong with your face she cried recoiling
in horror and seeking beneath their covers I felt a rush of cold air down my
spine and a thud in my ears like a door being slammed a long way away my back
felt icy I could feel the presence of something right behind me something
ancient and evidently rather irritable I stood up with a jump brushing the air
away there was a loud hum as though the whole room was vibrating and then just
like that it was gone my daughter and I looked at each other
open mouths what just happened what did you see I asked your face replied my
daughter it wasn’t you it was like like someone else was looking at me through
your eyes these snakes one is a ghostly Queen returning to her home and Berlin
is notorious as the second of King Henry the eighth’s
ill-fated wives to Marianne Henry spent years seeking a divorce from his first
wife Catherine of Aragon and went on to sever England’s relationship with the
Catholic Church in Rome forever changing the course of British history despite
the lengths he went to ensnare Henry sue grew tired of n and choosing to believe
the idle gossip surrounding her had her behaving in 1536 a number of reports
exist of the ghost of Anne Boleyn but perhaps the most affecting is the
version said to haunt her childhood home ever Castle and Kent
some say that every Christmas Eve the spectral figure of Anne Boleyn can be
seen slowly guiding across the bridge over the river
Eden toward her family home where she was at her happiest this next one is a true ghost story
talking about the former prison of Alcatraz the island of Alcatraz off the
coast of San Francisco has a long and spooky history in its early days Native
Americans allegedly used to banish miscreants to
the island as punishment where they were reportedly plagued by local spirits how
the trials of course became a notorious federal prison in 1934 housing criminals
such as Al Capone before it was shut down in 1963 today visitors to the
island report hearing screams the clanging of metal doors in the sound of
voices within the walls one of the more famous tales associated with the island
supposedly occurred in the 1940s when the warden james Johnston held a
Christmas Day party at his residence for the staff at the prison the good cheer
is said to have been brought to a swift halt when an apparition sporting
mutton-chop whiskers in a gray suit appeared the temperature in the room
plummeted and the fire blew out before returning to normal when the spirit
disappeared about a minute later the rattle guards were too scared to stay in
the residence in the rest of the Christmas celebration ended abruptly this one is entitled grandma visits
every Christmas every Christmas afternoon my family which includes my
parents siblings aunts uncles cousins gather in the living room of my
grandma’s house to play party games at some point each year we are joined by
the spirit of my great-grandmother Dorothy who passed away some time ago
her arrival is always Harold in the same way first
the carved wooden dolphins would sit on top of my grandma’s television a pair to
leap into the air and turn somersaults before come crashing to the floor with a
thud next comes the sound of the door slamming somewhere in the house followed
by the living room lights flickering eerily
it makes the hair on the back of everyone’s neck stand up but rather than
feeling scared most of us find it quite comfortable we miss her and for those
few minutes it feels like she’s still with us we’ll say hi mana and our star
visitor has come to join us then it will be over we’ll go back to exchanging
presents or watching a movie Dorothy loved Christmas day encourage everyone
to get involved in games and of charades or having drinks and it’s time when our
whole family is together so it’s no great surprise that she chooses them to
make her appearance this next Ronda is entitled the
Christmas ghost of Glamis castle a Christmas time a bearded man who flits
about that night in hovers over the bed of sweepers is reported pale faces that
peer through the windows and vanish to the accompaniment of shrieks there are
sounds of hammering as if somebody was putting up scaffolding it can also be
heard in the middle of the night and these are by no means the greatest of
the castles terrors a woman that was big guests at the castle one Christmas night
a woke to hear the moving of his soft body over the floor of her bedroom in
the crack of a bony joint and then to see the out of something luminous and
horrid in her room slowly she says the thing whatever it was took she a body
toning and haunched arms long in spite of the large and terrible head
with a tangled mass of gray hair a face white in staring pig like information
malevolent in expression as she stared at it a guest it reared itself on its
haunches and leer hideously at her then shuffling forward it rolled over and
laid sprawled out like some ungainly turtle at that time the handle on the
door turned and someone entered the room there was a loud cry in the whole tower
walls rafters rang with the most appalling scream these stories entitled sent the stuffs
the stockings when I was nine years old I could not get to sleep on Christmas
Eve because I was excited about the presence and wondered if my parents had
anything to do with the gifts that I received from Santa the year before that
night it was hot because the heater was on so I got thirsty also I was wanting
to spy I cut out of bed and cracked open my door to make sure no one was out in
the living so that I could get something to drink when I opened the door I saw
someone bent over then he stood up it was Santa Claus dressed in red and white
get up something strange was that I could see the Christmas lights from the
Christmas tree shining through he was taking the stockings down off the
mantel and placing them on the coffee table when he started to turn around to
put the next stocking on the table I closed the door and jumped back into bed
the next morning I woke up and told my sister what had seen I told her where he
had placed the stockings when we wanted to deliver them the stockings were where
I said that he put them we both turned and looked at each other and froze her
but from then on I have told everyone that I believed and sat down this next one is entitled the figure in
the recliner my mother to whom I was very close passed away when I was 17
years old that same year I left home but I met a girl five years later who I will
call care and we got married in March the following year in December the year
after we were expecting our first child we were living in a spa wanting to have
bedroom bungalow there was a fireplace in the living room my wife and I loved
the fireplace and we had it lit almost every night it was Christmas Eve and we
had just finished putting the gifts under the tree in a nice fire gave off a
beautiful glow on the tree one string of Lights which was supposed to flash had
stopped several days before it was five minutes to midnight when the fireplace
suddenly just about one time in that string of lights started to flash but
the strange thing is is the other lights stopped flash
my wife and I was sitting on the floor and it had become very chilly in the
room I looked over at my recliner and a figure was sitting there it was my
mother with a big beautiful smile on her face my wife who had never met my mother
before said she could see the same thing this spirit never spoke but just kept
looking at me and my wife and smiling at midnight the fireplace started up again
and the lights on the tree stopped flashing and the others started flashing
again I again looked over at the chair and the spirit was gone no matter what I
did to those Christmas lights they never flashed again thank you to my
