Halloween blog.... did you ever do this??


Did you ever do this as a child?
This was sent to me in a Halloween email. Then I wondered, has anyone else every done this? I was around 12 years old and we tried the " who believes in Mary Worth" late one night while at a friends house. All I can remember is that we got scared and stopped. I haven't thought about it since.... until I read the email? Anyone else?

If you go into the bathroom and look into the mirror with the lights off and the room completely black, and then say 'Bloody Mary' thirteen times, a woman will appear and scratch your face up/off.

I was told that if you said "Hell Mary" seven times in front of a mirror in a dark room, you would see Satan's image in the mirror. The story was embellished further by the teller, who claimed that after three "Hell Mary", the mirror turned red, and that after five an unclear face appeared.

Here's how I always heard the story.

You go into a room with a mirror and turn all the lights off (this works well in a bathroom). You begin, in a whisper, to chant "bloody mary. bloody mary, Bloody Mary", as you continue to chant your voice should grow louder and louder into a near scream. While you are chanting you should be spinning around at a medium rate and taking a glimpse in the mirror at each pass. Near the 13th repetition of the words . . . "she" should appear and...?

A frend of mine said that her roommate tried this and ran out screaming from the bathroom. She was shaking and appeared genuinely terrified and refused to talk about the incident, but those who were around her when she came out noticed that her clenched fingers were covered in blood.

Variations:

The avenging spirit goes by many names: Bloody Mary, Bloody Bones, Hell Mary, Mary Worth, Mary Worthington, Mary Whales, Mary Johnson, Mary Lou, Mary Jane, Sally, Kathy, Agnes, Black Agnes, Aggie, Svarte Madame.

Yeah, we always heard that too, about the 13 Bloody Mary's. Just a hint, Urban Legends of a demonic nature are guaranteed to frighten children from religious households more because they are more inclined to actually believe in demons and Satan and things supernatural.
