Tis the Night of Halloween

Fall is in the air.

Days are getting shorter, nights are getting colder, the trees are beginning to change colors, and everywhere you look, you’re bound to see people preparing for Halloween.

Long associated with harvest, death, and the onset of the winter, the fall has been a particularly eerie time of year for centuries. These beliefs stem as far back as pagan cultures and religions, and they’ve since cemented themselves quite firmly in the American culture. Year by year, the tradition continues to spread to other countries.

Do you like Halloween? Many people don’t. For them, all the spooks, scary movies, and even the candy just aren’t up their alley. For other people, however, being scared around Halloween time isn’t a choice.

What’s the scariest thing that ever happened to you? Redditors shared their scary-but-true stories, and these are perfect to tell a friend or two for Halloween.
