Many urban legends resurface around the Halloween time of year. The fictional stories seem to get bigger and more terrifying.
An urban legend is a genre of folklore comprising stories circulated as true. They are typically presented as having happened to a "friend of a friend" or family member.
These stories are usually terrifying, but sometimes. Something bad usually happens somewhere in the story.
Urban legends are most often passed along by people retelling the story. Some urban legends have passed through the years with only minor changes to suit regional variations.
Growing up in Omaha, there was the Hatchet House and Heartbeat Bridge. There is the Black Angel and many others.
Most of these urban legends are nothing more than stories of the imagination.
However, some of these tales turn out to be horrifyingly true.
