All December, Matt and I have been telling Christmas ghost and ghost-adjacent stories on The Shadow Storytellers.
Today's episode is the 4th and final one before we return to non-seasonal tales of terror in January, so it's a great time to binge the set if you want to fit in some last-minute festive chills.
Ghost stories are an old Christmas Eve tradition, and they're typically best told around a warm fireplace, but of course you can also enjoy ours while wrapping presents, traveling, baking, or taking care of whatever last-minute tasks are on your list.
They're completely free to listen to and currently ad-free as well.
"Something Else Is Coming to Town"
A young boy's attempts to catch Santa in the act inadvertently release a horrifying darkness into the world.
"The Gingerbread's the Thing"
An amateur baker/necromancer creates a haunted gingerbread house to get to the bottom of her sister’s untimely death.
"Don't Ruin It"
Specters reach across the ether to crash a Christmas Eve family dinner, but their powers to terrorize have nothing on That One Uncle.
"'Til the Merry End"
A recently deceased mall Santa arranges for a Christmas miracle.
