There are many stories in folklore that speak of the things we love about Halloween. However, do we really know their origin? This is the story of Stingy Jack and his run-in with the Devil. I won’t give any spoilers away, but I’ve often wondered how this beloved character of Halloween came to be. I hope you enjoy the story of Stingy Jack.
With the start of Fall, our thoughts switch from playing in the sun to cooler days and, of course, Halloween. At Deadly Reads Radio, we’re planning a special Halloween show where guests share their experiences with things that go bump-in-the-night. I know most of us have scary stories of unexplained encounters with beings or creatures that are not supposed to exist. Stories that make the hairs on the back of your neck stand at attention as your skin tingles, and your body trembles with fear.
So, in the spirit of Halloween, we are inviting those of you who would like to share their story with us and our listeners. If you do not want to be on the show, you can submit your story in writing and if time allows, we will read it on the show. We would really like to have someone who is a paranormal investigator join us, as well.
We will be recording the show on Saturday, Oct. 21 at 1 pm CST. Then it will be uploaded to our YouTube channel by the following Monday. If you are interested in being a guest and sharing your scary story with us, contact our Coordinating Director Lisa Vandiver at firstname.lastname@example.org and she’ll get you set up with the call-in number.
