Paranormal Christmas: The Tradition of Terrifying Children -

Paranormal Christmas: The Tradition of Terrifying Children - | For Lovers of Paranormal Romance | Scoop.it

Usually, when one thinks of monsters, Halloween comes to mind, but Christmas has its own creepy supernatural beings.

 

Today these legends seem horrific and traumatizing. Why do you think people hundreds or thousands of years ago felt the need to scare their children into behaving?

Yet today, in America’s widely secular Christmas, children are taught to behave or they will be denied presents.

Old customs may be criticized for exploiting a child’s fear, while modern customs may be scrutinized for teaching a child to value material things.

Shonda Brock's insight:

What do you think about these customs?

 

Are they harmless, obsolete stories that are simply used for fun?
Or are they damaging in more profound ways?

Please welcome author of The Sanctum Trilogy, Madhuri Blaylock, to Paranormal Wednesday.

Shonda Brock's insight:

I am a lawyer by day, writer and avid shoe and dress buyer at all other times. I live in Jersey City, but my heart remains firmly planted in Brooklyn via Snellville, Georgia. My husband, Henry, is also a lawyer, and only a lawyer because he actually likes being a lawyer (go figure), probably always wanted to be a lawyer and is really, really good at all things lawyerly. He's also pretty hot.
