:) Urban Legend is a spooky story going rounds in our city! If you can take time to go through the other posts in this section, I am sure you will get an idea of what an Urban Legend is!

Urban Legends are usually strange events that through the telling from person to person the story grows. Usually there is truth to the story but by the retelling of it many details change . Have you ever heard the story of the vanishing hitchhiker?

This is the best description I have found yet:

"An urban legend:

appears mysteriously and spreads spontaneously in varying forms
contains elements of humor or horror (the horror often "punishes" someone who flouts society's conventions).
makes good storytelling.
does NOT have to be false, although most are. ULs often have a basis in fact, but it's their life after-the-fact (particularly in reference to the second and third points) that gives them particular interest."
