I had planned several posts on holiday horrors, but I’ve been ill and I just don’t have the energy.
Instead, let’s reprise some of the holiday hits of the past.
Leeches, Radium, and a Corpse in a Box: Strange Christmas Presents of the Past. Just what it says…
When Santas Go Rogue BAD Santas.
Abby Warner’s Christmas Rappings. It was a far from silent night, when young Abby Warner went to a Christmas service in Massillon Ohio.
Mary, Queen of Scots Wails on Christmas Eve Predicting a royal death…
O Tödliche Baum! O Tödliche Baum! Killer Christmas trees.
I wish all of my readers the best of holiday seasons and a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year. I’ll be back in 2018 with more Fortean Fun.
