I am sure that everyone has heard this story in one form or another.  

It's prom night and Mary Sue is all excited because her big time crush Jimmy has asked her to the prom.  She gets all dressed up and leaves the house to meet Jimmy at the prom.  She has been dreaming of this night for the longest time, and doesn't even care about the slight drizzle of rain that is falling.  

Mary Sue gets into a bad car accident and never makes it to the prom to meet Jimmy.  She is killed and misses her dream date.

To this day, on prom night, a ghostly car can be seen driving the same route that Mary Sue drove.

Or the ghostly figure of Mary Sue is seen standing by the side of the road.

Or the ghostly figure of Jimmy is seen pacing back and forth at the accident site.


I can't tell you how many different times I have heard this story, both from highschool and college.  Each community seems to have it's own version of it, but it is pretty much the same plot.

What versions of the story have you guys heard?

Well I heard that Mary Sue was driving and she wrecked off of a bridge, and that you can see her spirit walking from the bridge to the place where she and jimmy were supposed to meet....I've also heard that it was Jimmy that got into the accident...that he wrecked and that Mary Sue was at the accident scene and was struck by a car as she stood looking at the scene.  Go figure why there are so many variations of one story. kinda like playing telephone I guess...probably the true story was a simple as two teenagers getting into a car accident on prom night (probably drunk) and dying...probably no spirits about it.

The Hitch hiker.

Some guy was driving down the road late at night, during a semi hard rainfall. He notices a girl standing in the rain. He pulls over asks if she needs a lift and she says yes.  So she is in the car and giving directions to her home. She introduces herself (anyname i'm not sure we will say Stephanie) not much or little conversation takes place after that and finally they arrive. She thanks him and leaves the car, but just as he is about to drive off he looks at the car seat and sees that she had left behind her scarf. He looks out to call to her but she is gone. Thinking she went inside he got out of his car, walked up to the door and nocked.  A middle aged woman opens the door. He says "Hi, I gave your daughter a ride home just now and she left this in my car." just then her face went white and looked Puzzled.  
He notices this and then asks her if she has a daughter by the name of Stephanie, she says she had but she has been dead for a few years, now the guys face turns a pale white and asks to see a picture of her daughter. Sure enough she shows him and she is wearing the same scarf.

(Well thats the way I heard it anyway ;) )

Black Knight, I have also heard that story, but it involved a boy and a hat.

Aurelia, you are probably right, a simple story that has been twisted through the generations of telling it.

When I was in College in Johnstown, PA, we spent a Halloween searching for the grave of the girl.  We did end up finding it, but that was about all we found, a headstone, no spirit or anything else.  It was quite a disappointment.

Well it seems to me that if there were a spirit of that girl that she wouldn't be in the cemetary...it seems that she would be hitchhiking...of course according to most versions I've heard, it's supposed to be on the anniversary of prom night/death..that you see her.

The big thing about Halloween as far as ghost-hunting is that Halloween, or All Hallows eve as it was originally called is that it's a celebration of the dead.  Gaelic cultures would disappear into their houses and leave food and drink and gifts for the dead when they came from their graves.  It's a day for spirits to manifest themselves and act as the living.  Which is one reason I am not into Halloween...the pure meaning of it was destroyed by commercialism.

:;) Actually, All Hallows Eve is the name that Christians gave to the holiday. Before that it is called Samhain(sow-en) and it marks the Celtic New Year which is Nov. 1st. It is a time of merry making and feasting and bc it is a time when the veil between the worlds is thin we also honor those that have passed in to the next world. ;)

Commercialism has indeed destroyed the meaning of most holidays......thats why we have a responsiblity to enlighten folks on the original meanings and histories of our holidays ;).

Did anyone know that the original jack o lanterns were made out of turnips?
