Scary Christmas

What comes to mind when you think of Christmas? Santa giving gifts? Delicious food? Time spent with loved ones? That’s how we celebrate it now, but if you believe the rumours, it wasn’t always that way.

In fact, the period from December 24 to December 25 was used to pray for those souls who had yet to move on from this plane of existence. On the night of December 24, if you placed a shoe by your pillow, someone that wasn’t Santa would then place something inside it. If you happened to see that person, or what they put inside, then they would drag you away to heaven with them.

Holidays like Christmas might be commercialised now, but they weren’t always that way…
