Ichabod, Ichabod



The Legend of Sleepy Hollow has always been one of my favorite ghost stories, particularly around All Hallows Eve, for as we know that's when the horseman rides!


What are your favorite ghost and/or Hallowe'en stories?

  1. I love Nightmare Before Christmas. I know it's a movie and technically not from the written word but I still love it. The music in it is just so great. You have to love Tim Burton.

  2. Funny you should mention Washington Irving! I just bought a collection of his work just so I could have The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle.

    I like some of Edgar Allen Poe's stories, and I really like his poetry.

    I grew up with lots of local ghost stories. I plan to do a long blog post sometime this week on South Carolina lowcountry ghosts. Our entire coast (especially around Charleston!) is haunted.

  3. Have you ever seen "In the Company of Wolves"? I haven't seen it in ages but for some reason this post reminded me of it. I think you'd really like it.

    I haven't seen "The Company of Wolves" since I was a young teenager. My high school best friend and I watched it dozens of times. I've never heard any other mention of it anywhere. You get cool points!! :D

  5. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow has long been a favorite of mine, from the time I was a very little girl watching it on television (cartoon version, of course ;-)

  6. @Witchy, actually it totally counts as it was a book before it was a movie. I'm a huge fan of both; I own a first edition copy of the book and a few copies of the movie that I've bought over the years. :)

  7. Oh! Thanks Danni. I'll try to remember to check the book stores for a copy of the book.

  8. Great choice! The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is to Halloween as A Christmas Carol is to Christmas in our house. Can't let a year go by without it!
