"Ghosts of Christmas Past"

When: Fri., Dec. 16, 7-9 p.m. and Sat., Dec. 17, 7-9 p.m. 2016

Revisit the somewhat-lost tradition of scary ghost stories at Christmastime on the Sisters Grimm “Ghosts of Christmas Past” tour at the Menger Hotel. Known as the “most haunted hotel” in all of Texas, there have been countless ghost and spirit sightings in this historic haunt. From Sallie White, whose husband is said to have shot her on suspicion of infidelity, to Capt. Richard King, the eternal guest who died in the King Suite, you’ll hear creepy and unexplainable tales from the theatrical Sisters Grimm tour guides. In full character and costume, their performances might just awaken your senses to the other side so you can have a spirit sighting of your own. You’ll also view some of the beautiful Christmas decorations and historic suites in the Menger — rooms you might not get to see unless you book a hotel stay with your tour as part of the Sisters Grimm package. So celebrate the most wonderful time of the year with, as the song says, “scary ghost stories and tales of the glories of Christmases long long ago.” And don’t forget to take pictures you can analyze later, looking for unexplained shadows and ghostly ghouls.

Price: $15-$25 in advance
