I'm not talking about the crazy b*tch from England, I'm talking about the legend of Bloody Mary. If you write her name on a mirror with the lights off and chant her name three times, she will appear and try to kill you, or so the story goes.

Is this just a U.S. thing, or is this a superstition known throughout the world? We're talking about Folk and Popular culture in my AP Hum. Geography class, so I'm a little curious at the moment.

I believe that's mire of a western cultural thing. Though Im sure Asians have quite a few of their own ghostly superstitions.

This is actually only in the Anglosaxon world I guess not the whole "Western World", but nevertheless I heard of this story through American TV series.

"Hanako of the toilet" (Japanese ghost haunting toilets and like Bloody Mary if you shoot her name you die. Actually kinda similar to Moaning Myrtle of Harry Potter, certainly both linked)

AP,

In the anime series Haunted Junction Hanako-san is a school spirit "helping out" boys on the toilet. Episode 6 completely focuses on Hanako and one episode shows the various versions of the ghost Hanako.

Why?
