Christmas Ghost Stories

Description: Christmas Eve used to be dedicated to telling ghost stories with your family and friends around the fireplace. This article describes that lost tradition.

While reading a list of all the modern Christmas traditions that were either borrowed from pagan winter festivals or invented by the English during the mid-19th century, it's remarkable to see how little Christmas has changed over the past 160 years.

People still send Christmas cards, decorate evergreen trees, go door-to-door caroling and stuff stockings with candy. Christmas, at least as most Americans celebrate it, really is a product of Victorian England.

In the last few decades, though, perhaps one of the most interesting Victorian Christmas traditions has been almost completely lost from memory.

"Whenever five or six English-speaking people meet round a fire on Christmas Eve, they start telling each other ghost stories," wrote British humorist Jerome K. Jerome as part of his introduction to an anthology of Christmas ghost stories titled "Told After Supper" in 1891. "Nothing satisfies us on Christmas Eve but to hear each other tell authentic anecdotes about specters."

The following is a collection of Christmas Ghost Stories we have put together. Please feel free to share them with your family and friends during Christmas.
