Creepmas Day Ten! Ghosts

Ghosts and Christmas--they seem to go hand in hand. We all know the the story of "The Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens and there are many more. So why do these spirits "walk the earth" at this festive time of year? Simply because this festive time of year is encroaching on THEIR festive time of year--Halloween. I mean, they just manage to crawl their way out of their ghostly abodes at the appropriate time of year when they get a load of "sorry, mates--run along now, Christmas is coming!" Is it any wonder these guys feel a bit miffed and cheated out of their ghostly rights to haunt, moan, and frighten? And in retaliation, is it any wonder that they want to scare the begeezus out of folks as they gather around the Christmas tree? I think not. And just so you can get back a little bit of that old Halloween magic during this festive time of year, take a look at this. Remember The X-Files "How the Ghosts Stole Christmas" episode? hehe...

  1. So is this what they mean when they talk of the spirit of Christmas? Or should we say spirits of Christmas?
