An Eddy on the Floor: A Ghost Story for Christmas
A man recieves an unexpected appointment as doctor at the local prison. But when a terrified inmate begs to be moved, the young doctor begins to question his good fortune: the cell adjacent the freightened man has been boarded up for years - and no one will let the doctor inside.
Steeped in traditions older than the Christmas we often celebrate in modern times, ghost stories told at Christmas were a reflection of the ideas of ending and rebirth (both of the year and crops), as well as reflecting on the darkness (both outside and within). As people gather with families, it is natural to remember those who are no longer amongst the group and to share tales with younger generations.
An Eddy on the Floor is one such story that is shared with a Christmas spirit. Originally told by Bernard Capes this single story is one in a group of Christmas Ghost Stories that are perfect for holiday gatherings.
