Most of us enjoy a good scare. That's why we go to haunted houses, BASE jump, whitewater kayak, and ride scary roller coasters. There is an amount of joy that comes from being terrified and then in the end realizing you are fine.
Ah, Halloween: the one time of year when it’s completely appropriate to scare the fecal matter out of loved ones and friends. If your goal is to make sure children can’t sleep at night, a disturbing urban legend is just the ammunition you need.
Especially around Halloween, most of us enjoy a good old-fashioned “it happened to a friend of a friend” urban legend that gives us a bit of a fright. Some of these tales may have even really happened. Well, kind of.
