Urban legends thrive on people's deepest fears, that our safe world can crack at any moment and a madman will change our lives forever. That alone is enough to give anyone second thoughts about our everyday routine.
Legends and folklore tales range from the maniacal serial killer to the completely unexplained. Everyone loves scary ghost stories around the campfire or in the Fall, when the days get shorter, the nights get longer, and imaginations run wild.
Chances are you'll find many versions of these stories as they get passed on from person to person. Children have a tendency to twist the plots and make them fit their particular circumstances. The Halloween season seems to bring out the best of urban legends, both old and new.
Many of these stories are old classics from years past. They may not be the version you've heard, but that's what makes it fun. With the help of our readers, we've got lots of variations, some relating to ghosts, the supernatural, and hoaxes. These legends are not suitable for young children or the faint of heart. If you've got nerves of steel, proceed with caution.
Get comfortable, dim the lights and read through some classic as well as modern urban legends and folklore. Did it really happen, or was it just a figment of someone's imagination?
