Ghosts and Christmas go together like figgy and pudding. Don’t believe me? A Christmas Carol, one of the most famous Christmas stories of all time, has four ghosts. There is also a BBC series called A Ghost Story for Christmas where for several years, the BBC aired a spooky story either just before or on Christmas.
Here are five spooky Christmas books for adults and two for the little ones. Enjoy!
