Hello Everyone,

Although this one doesn’t really fit into the “haunted” category, I chose to include it anyway for its eerie nature and fate. As many of us know, there are several Six Flags across the United States of America, but Six Flags New Orleans is one that was forced to close years before its time.

Six Flags New Orleans:

The park was a large park in its day. 140 acres that now stand abandoned in eerie decay. The pictures are enough to tell the story of the feeling that one can get simply be looking through the photos.

It had a short life as well, especially when you consider how long many amusement parks stay open. Six Flags New Orleans opened in 2000 and closed in 2005.

Why is it Eerie?

Six Flags New Orleans met the end of its short life due to Hurricane Katrina flooding the park Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

I wanted to address the Halloween subject of carving pumpkins or also known as Jack-o’-lanterns. It is not often we hear the term, Jack-o’-lanterns, anymore but I guess times change.

Origin of Jack-o’-lanterns :

Well before they were Jack-o’-lanterns they were called will-o’-the-wisp. At least in the old folklore’s of England and other parts of Western Europe. This started around the mid to late 1600s. The term “Jack” just replaced “Will” but they meant virtually the same thing. One was of the torch. Will of the torch, and the other of the lantern, Jack. It was based off the lighting phenomenon that occurs but the will-o’-the ‘wisp was most commonly just a torch. I know it’s confusing but it slowly grew from a standard torch, a bundle of sticks and what not, to the surrounding vessel that contained the flame.

The carvings from the pumpkins was not original Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

So this next segment is once again about haunted places. However, much like Tatakanoruma Greenland, this segment is on haunted or allegedly haunted and abandoned amusement parks.

Tatakanoruma Greenland:

The park was originally opened in 1973. It is located in Japan near Horbara but it is not listed on any maps in Japan. In fact after looking through for a location and seeing what others have discovered is that the coordinates for the park in Google Earth take you to the city nearby.

The park is located in the mountainous regions of Japan and used these natural landscapes to help design the layout of the park. Tatakanoruma Greenland was not the original park in the area either. In the 1960s a smaller park opened up overlooking the site that Tatakonuma Greenland was built on. This park also closed mysteriously after only being opened for a short time.

Hello Everyone,

Thought this recommendation was fun, considering most of us know about this eerie vessel but not many of us know about its origins. We have seen it appear in recent movies which has brought it more to light but how many of you know the original stories of the Flying Dutchman before the stories from the recent “Pirates” movies?

The Flying Dutchman:

The Flying Dutchman was a ship and one point in time. At least many of the stories of origin can attest to that. Whether it was a pirate ship, a merchant vessel, a man-o-war or some general shipping vessel is up to the story and place or origin.

The Flying Dutchman usually appears in a dark, eerie cloud of fog that floats on the water. It seems to drift where there is no wind or current. Some out its black tattered sails still hold wind and Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

First off I never really liked this nursery rhyme because something about it just didn’t set right with me. I am sure everyone has heard ideas of the origin behind the famous nursery rhyme. But have any of you actually taken the time to see for yourself what the origins of Ring around the Rosie truly are?

Ring around the Rosie:

So here is a couple different verses, all mixed together, and these depend on what country, or time period, you were singing Ring around a Rosie aka: Ring a Ring o’ Rosie, Ring A Ring o’ Roses.

Ring-a-ring o’ roses,
A pocket full of posies,
A-tishoo! A-tishoo!
We all fall down.


Cows in the meadows
Eating buttercups
A-tishoo! A-tishoo!
We all jump up.

Ring-a-round the rosie,
A pocket full of posies,
Ashes! Ashes!
We all fall down.


Hush! Hush! Hush! Hush!
We’ve all tumbled down Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

Okay, so some times when I do research on a certain topic it takes me a very long time to finish because something else is mentioned and then I have to research that. This has been both a blessing and a curse. So while I was doing research on the Dreamcatchers a while back I stumbled across something that I thought was something else and had to share it. Windcatchers.

Now when most of us hear someone say Windcatchers, we usually think of those little spinning, colorful decorations that people place in their yards or that little kids carry around. However, the original Windcatchers go back a lot further than that.


Now I wish I would have thought about doing this one in the hot summer months but where I live it is still pretty warm. Over 100 degrees some days. And that is why the Windcatchers Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

So I decided to not post this on the actual date of the eclipse because I felt like everyone was being a little bombarded with information about the eclipse that it might be a bit much. So on a different note about what this last eclipse actual means or what the stellar properties of the alignment are all about, I wanted to dive into the eerie aspects and talk a little bit about the myths and beliefs that eclipses have created.


We all know, or at least most of us do, how the eclipses are caused. Typically, with us, on Earth, it is one stellar body moving in front of the sun, which is most often the moon. Hopefully, right. I mean if it wasn’t that would mean something else was getting awfully close.

Either way they are odd and often cause quite the spectacle as we Continue reading

Hello Everyone,


So I think I am going to touch base on some more random stuff between or last segment of blogs and the next batch that concentrates around a particular subject. Figured it would change it up a little bit for all the readers out there. And once again thank you for all your kind remarks and visitations to the site. So I was sitting at my computer the other day and putting together a list of interesting things and the first thing that came to mind was Dreamcatchers. Mainly because I have many of them in my home but also a rather large just above my computer that I purchased at “The Thing” tourist attraction in southern Arizona. I purchased it on my way back from the White Mountains and since then I have been fascinated with them.


Dreamcatchers Origin:


Most ‘original’ Dreamcatchers were from Continue reading

Hello Everyone,

So we’ve all come to another end of a segment of blogs about scary, spooky and otherwise Eerie Lights. I wanted to do a form of wrap-up to this segment, not only to explain why I choose the haunted lights but also to touch on a few other areas that were not covered in the previous blogs.

First off: What Makes Them Eerie Lights

Well, first off all it is usually a light in the middle of the night, in the middle of nowhere, in the middle of…..okay kidding, but you get the idea. It is something that is not natural or if it is, it is unexplained. At least not explained to some level.

As we know many of the Eerie Lights have been “debunked” in their haunted origins. Yet many of them can also not explain how the lights existed before cars, which seems to be Continue reading
