Real Ghosts in a Christmas Carol?
There are several layers of spooky to Rob Gutro’s Christmas ghost story.
It features Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, which stars the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Be. And Rob chose to see this spooky seasonal treat at one of the most famous theatres in the world, Ford’s Theatre, Washington DC. Famous, of course, not for its fantastic theatrical pedigree, but for the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln in 1865.
Rob, who is a medium, claims he was spoken to by the ghost of Lincoln’s killer, John Wilkes Booth. He was in the gift shop. Back stage, a female spirit whose name starts with M came to Rob, with details of the assassination. In his seat, Rob was visited by an unnamed male spirit, who left when he was asked.
