How you all doing?
So close to Christmas...wasn't it Halloween only a few weeks ago?
Well here in Keynsham near Bath, we have snow.....It feels a bit dreamy really - I can't remember it being as snowy as this so near to Christmas...
Now Christmas in my opinion wouldn't be Christmas without some spooky stories now would it?
Thanks to youtube, you can watch lots of these bygone Christmas programmes from yesteryear..which I discovered yesterday..so while I'm painting away I can listen to these stories which I will share with you...so as best as I can I will link the stories, so they are just a click away!
Back in the 1970s - here in the UK on BBC 1..some classic ghost stories were shown, by a famous writer called M.R. James...and the one that you MUST watch is called
Whistle and I'll come to you...
Its a story about a man, who simply does not believe in the supernatural...
and another by the same writer, but shown 10 years ago late at night on the BBC is called..
The Number 13
Read by Christopher Lee...Its a story about a man, staying at a hotel, where there is no Number 13 room...or is there?
Another story featuring a young Deborah Kerr as a Governess is
This isn't set at Christmas, but should be watched as the atmosphere is amazing....
Now for something a little bit more Christmassy
This is the version with Albert Finney and in my opinion the best one - this terrified me as a child!!
You can find lots of free things to watch on You Tube...go on have a look!
Hope all of your Christmas plans are going well!
