Ghosts, ghouls, bats, spiders and vampires! Why is Halloween so popular? For one thing, every culture throughout history has had some spirit of our modern Halloween – a single day to throw off the constraints of who we are and become someone or something we’re not. We have one night a year to take a break from our fears and laugh at death and make fun of the demons among us, real or imagined. Against our often sterile, antibacterial and overly safe society we can remember a time, not so long ago, when we would huddle together around a warm campfire and tell ghost stories among the long, flickering shadows. Read on for some great stories, facts, haunted places and anything else relating to Halloween.
