Ghost Stories- Chilling or Thrilling?

These 'gravediggers' are ready to dig in. The tour visits the sites of Boston's most grotesque and notorious murders and legends, from the Boston Strangler to the Angel of Death. To cap the tour, passengers get a rare treat: a stroll through two of Boston's most famous graveyards, Copp's Hill Burying Ground and the Granary Burying Ground -- after dark. From left, the diggers are Julia Cook, Evan O'Brien, Kat Kingsley, Mike Manship, and Steven Johnson.

Happy Halloween! A day of fright and fun, pranks and treats, fantasy and reality, today is a HUGE day for a couple of reasons. First of all it is a day to indulge in your playful side, embrace the childish enthusiasm you had when a sheet over your head and a pillowcase in hand was the height of sophistication.

The second reason Halloween is important is that it, in my mind at least, kicks off the holiday season! Meaning -decorations, parties and goodies galore.

In the spirit (no pun intended) of the day I found this fun ghost story in today’s Boston Globe about a local ghost that has found herself a home in a B&B on the Cape. Located a short walk from Barnstable Village, the Beechwood Inn plays host to many travelers and apparently a resident… spirit. This caught my attention not only because it was a fun story, but because I was recently considering this Inn as a place to stay during a weekend wedding. Spooky! (Next time I’m in that area I’m definitely going to check it out)

Keep a sharp eye out , on Halloween anything can happen…
