The nights have drawn in and daylight is scarce. In homes around the country, people are closing the curtains and holing themselves in, shutting out the darkness and surrounding themselves with festive light. This is the time for sharing ghost stories, whether spine-chillingly terrifying or heart-warmingly beautiful.
Be frightened, shed tears, raise smiles. After all, 'tis the season.
This is the anthology from the first Crowvus Christmas Ghost Story Competition, with the winning entries and Highly Commended stories.
