A Ghost Story for Christmas!
Reading a ghost story on Christmas Eve was once much a part of traditional Christmas celebrations as turkey, eggnog, and Santa Claus.
The Dead and The Countess by Gertrude Atherton shares how the dead sleep peacefully - until a railway is built near their cemetery. While the old Priest works to keep them at rest, the Count's dying wife begs to be buried near the railway. But when her last wish is granted, the Priest finds that the sounds of the train leaves the Countess far from at peace.
