In Victorian Britain, it was traditional to read a ghost story for Christmas - stories with a holiday theme like "The Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens or regular horror stories like "Lost Hearts" by M.R. James.

So, if you have a little time in the next couple of days before Christmas, find one of these classic ghost stories and have a good old-fashioned holiday scare:

1 “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens

2 “A Warning to the Curious” by M.R. James

3 “The Turn of the Screw” by Henry James

4 “The Body-Snatcher” by Robert Louis Stevenson

5 “The Willows” by Algernon Blackwood

6 “The Canterville Ghost” by Oscar Wilde

7 “Ligeia” by Edgar Allan Poe

8 “The Monkey’s Paw” by W.W. Jacobs

9 “The Phantom ‘Rickshaw” by Rudyard Kipling

10 “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” by Washington Irving
