Six Creepiest Hallowe’en Superstitions
What’s Hallowe’en without scaring yourself silly at nothing?
Ghosts in the pocket
If you go out after dark on Hallowe’en, you must turn your pockets inside out to prevent ghosts hitching a ride in your pockets. This is the sort of Tamagotchi pet you don’t want.
If a bat circles a house three times, someone inside will die before the year is out.
Footsteps of Death
If you hear footsteps behind you on Hallowe’en, don’t turn around – it could be Death, or a departed soul.
Staring into the face of Death is a good way to join him…
If you cast a headless shadow, or no shadow at all, on Hallowe’en, you are sure to die Or you’re the Horseman of Death. Both are situations you want to avoid.
Blown Out Candle
If a candle is blown out as if by a breath, but there is no wind, it has been blown out by a Spirit.
Cats Playing With Spirits
Cats will play with things you can’t see. They’ll stare at them. Miaow at them. Bat at figures you can’t perceive. Hiss at them. Run away from them. Hide from them.
And the worst thing? They do this all year around.
