Legends & Folklore of Winter with Chad Lewis
- 7 - 8 p.m.
- All Ages
As Dickens wrote, the ghosts of Christmas are really the past, present and future, swirling around us in the dead of the year. They’re a reminder that we’re all haunted, all the time, by good ghosts and bad, and that they all have something to tell us. Winter may seem like a quiet time, but it is actually filled with bizarre tales and stories of cannibalistic spirits, Krampus the anti-Santa Claus, stories of little people, werewolves, witches, people being buried alive, and numerous other Holiday traditions for the darkest days of the year. Sip a cup of cocoa or cider and join us for chilling and mysterious folklore perfect for this time of year, sponsored in part by the Hiawatha Public Library.
