31 Days of Spook – St Louis Cemetery #1, Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery and Howard Street Cemetery

So you were brave enough to come back for another scare my friends?¬† How brave you are.¬† You may want ask your human to get you a night light tonight because it can only get worse from here – insert evil snort. ¬†Today we are going to highlight some famous and eerie cemeteries.¬† Are you brave enough to enter my cemetery of the famous dead?¬†I’ve wandered throughout the internet and done a lot of research to bring you some intriguing places of final rest… or is it? ¬†I hope that you find them interesting.

¬†Let’s take a little stroll amidst the stones shall we.

When I think of scary and mysterious cemeteries, my first thoughts have to go towards New Orleans. ¬†Let’s visit the¬†St. Louis Cemetery #1. ¬† This cemetery opened in 1789 and there are over 100,000 residents. ¬†With that much of a crowd, you know some have to be a little unhappy with their final resting place. ¬†I know I would be. ¬†The most famous tenant here is Marie Laveau. ¬†Marie Laveau was a famous voodoo priestess. ¬†People visit her grave site often and mark three “X’s” on her grave. ¬†People that do so believe that by marking the three “X’s”, Marie Laveau will grant them their wish.

The next that came to mind were two different cemeteries in the Chicago area. ¬†One was Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery in Chicagoland. ¬†I’ve heard about this place a lot over the years. ¬†I’ve seen specials on television and mommy has read me different chilling facts in books. ¬†Not only does this cemetery have a history of unexplained lights and ghosts, it has an entire house that mysteriously appears and disappears. ¬†Many people that have seen the house describe it as a white farmhouse with pillars and a swing. ¬†The other cemetery was Resurrection Cemetery in Chicago. ¬†This story¬†sends chills up and down my spine every time I see it on television. ¬†It starts off with a beautiful girl who was walking home from a dance one late night. ¬†She was hit by a car and killed and has been looking for a ride home every since. ¬†I saw a story one night where a man picked up this lady at a dance. ¬†They danced into the late hours and he admitted that she felt cold to the touch. ¬†Upon taking her home after the dance, she asked him to stop in front of the cemetery. ¬†She got out and disappeared into the air.

And how can we forget the most eerie of places in Salem, Massachusetts at¬†Howard Street Cemetery. ¬†With all of the witch hunts that took place here, this has got to be one of the most haunted places in the United States. ¬†Just think of all of the innocent people that were slowly tortured and burned at the stake for the public believing they were witches. ¬†How many of those spirits still walk around wanting people to know that they were innocent but forever labeled a witch. ¬†Talk about your unfinished business in setting things straight. ¬†This reminds me of a story that mom told me about a guy named Giles Corey. ¬†He was officially the only person to die by torture during these Witch Trials. ¬†He wouldn’t say that he was a witch so the sheriff of the time made him lay down in the middle of his field. ¬†The sheriff then had a board placed across his chest and slowly added stones on top of the board. ¬†Eventually two days later, Corey was crushed to death in a slow and agonizing way.

Let’s Make Music Fun

I can’t breathe. ¬†Me, mom and dad were laughing so hard we were crying – have you ever done that my friends? ¬†It was so hilarious. ¬†There we were sitting in the front room talking and mom asked daddy this question. ¬†She said, “Name three song titles that make up a story.” ¬†Then it was on – mom/dad kept going back and forth making up hilarious stories. ¬†I’m going to share some with you.

Love in the First Degree – Can’t Touch This – Another One Bites the Dust

Any Day Now – A Dozen Roses – Smoky Mountain Rain

Beat It – Whip It – Dude Looks Like a Lady

Old McDonald had a Farm – Horse with No Name – Take This Job and Shove It

I Will Always Love You – How Deep is Your Love – Nothing Compares 2 U

Stand by Me – Let’s Dance – Celebration

See how it works? ¬†Now it’s your turn. ¬†What can you come up with to keep the laugh going?

Thank You My Friends

Thank you for making my 31 Days of Spook last month a great month.  

I hope you had as much fun reading my blogs as I did creating them… and I hope I didn’t scare you too bad. ¬†I work year round in gathering different stories and fun facts to share. I really hope it showed.

As in years past, at the end of October I like to offer a badge for surviving my 31 Days of Spook. ¬†I like to give a special shout out to my brother¬†Easy¬†and his staff across the pond for coming up with this year’s, “I Survived 31 Days of Spook 2015”. ¬†I think this year’s badge really showcases my spooky October. ¬†Please feel free to share this special badge on your blog.

And thank YOU for visiting my blog and being part of my 31 Days of Spook. ¬†Now, I’m going to get some rest because you know what’s coming soon, right? ¬†That evil Elf on the Shelf – shivers. ¬†Is it that time already?
