Perhaps the most famous ghost story in the world isn't told at Halloween time -- no, it is, of course, "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens, which features no fewer than four ghosts. So Christmas, among its many other attributes, is closely associated with ghosts and other aspects of the paranormal, including angels and miracles. So each year we gather true tales from readers that take place on or around Christmas. In this year's collection are Christmas messages from ghosts, peculiar incidents, even a dark Christmas spectre! Read them all.
