Top 5 Halloween Urban Legends

Oct 25, 2013

Halloween wouldn't be halloween without a few scary stories, right? If you're going to a Halloween party, you might want to take the stage and tell a scary Halloween Urban Legend. Just in case you don't know what an Urban Legend is... imagine a story about a woman who had a hairdo so big, spiders began to live in her hair! It's not an easy story to believe, but it has become one of the greatest Urban Legends. Here are Kidzworld's Top 5 Urban Legends for Halloween...

No. 5 - The 13th Floor

Have you ever wondered why there is no 13th floor in most buildings? The urban legend comes from an old haunted house somewhere in Pennsylvania. People were invited to the house on Halloween and they were asked to sign waivers to protect the owner from anything that might happen to them. The guests would then try to get to the 13th floor through a bunch of long hallways and staircases. Each floor would try to scare the guests more and more from reaching the next floor up. Those who left in fear of reaching the 13th floor were lucky, because anyone who had ever reached the 13th floor has never come out of the house to tell their story.

No. 4 - The Vanishing Hitchhiker

You probably know that it is against the law to hitchhike. It is also very scary to hitchhike. Thousands of hitchhikers have gone missing over the years without any clues to their whereabouts. An urban legend tells a tale about hitchikers that are picked up by truck drivers, tourists travelling the country, young teenagers out on joyrides, and the hitchhiker usually tells a long story about an accident or a murder. Then after the drivers drop off the hitchhiker, petrified of the story, they watch the hitchhiker vanish into thin air. The story was about that hitchiker.

No. 3 - Bloody Mary

If you are in a room that is pitch black and has a sink with running water, you can do a chant to make the ghost of Bloody Mary appear. All you do is stand in front of a mirror and say her name three times for each time you spin around in a circle. If you turn on the lights, Mary will have appeared or left a clue from her horrible story... but that story is too scary to tell you on Kidzworld.

No. 2 - The Haunted Doll

There is a movie called "Child's Play" with a doll named "Chucky" and his story is based on a real Urban Legend. Back in the early 1900s, a little boy named Robert was given a doll named "Robert" by the family's maid. There was a rumor that the maid put a voodoo spell on the doll and it terrorized Robert until the day he died. Here is a little video about this true story...

 

No. 1 - Hands Resist Him

The urban legend of "The Hands Resist Him" is about a painting by Bill Stoneham in1972. The painting has been passed from owner to owner where each person claimed to say it was haunted. Some of the owners were reported to die mysteriously within a short time of owning the painting. Judge for yourself... is it scary or what?

I'm a perfectionist, but I don't care about outer appearances, which explains why my room is always messy. If you'd pay me 5 bucks a week if I keep it clean every day, then I would definitely clean my room to crisp perfection. Moving on to my 'perfectionism'. Well, I get incredibly frustrated and even start crying if I can't comprehend a lesson or my homework. Last time this happened, I was so angry that I went to bed, hoping that tomorrow, the deal would be cleared up. If someone helps me do something that I can't, I feel defeated and embarrassed, just like the O.P. So I force myself to do my homework alone until I eventually think I get it. When I get mad, I try to distance myself from others and stay in my room, calming down and relaxing to make the anger pass away, unlike many. I don't want to risk getting mad at the others, fearing that it'll make a bad situation in the future. I'd say I'm a good drawer when it comes to anime, so I try to make my pictures really, really, really perfect. This is what I think: Ugh, the eye shape on the right looks weird! What's up with that mouth? It's so hard to draw eyelashes!  I'm going to need to redo the irises. Should I make the nose stand out or not? This face does not look like an anime girl's face! Have I drawn some sort of monster? So, yeah, it does sound like I'm quite the perfectionist, but I'm very lazy and won't blow up in somebody's face because they ruined something I made with such detailed perfection.
