Halloween

Comic By Abbie Smith

Halloween has long been known as a frightening time when the ghostly spirits were said to run free.  Along with evil witches, fairies and goblins, every year children, teens, and even adults dress up all around the world to celebrate Halloween in their unique way.  Halloween is usually considered as eerie season, to others, it’s a chance to enjoy the beautiful fall weather, and it’s also a chance to remember their passed relatives.

S.C. Folklore :

This is the story of Alice Flagg from Georgetown, who became very ill and died of malaria while in boarding school at the age of 15. Alice’s fiance’ had given her a diamond ring, but her brother disapproved of the relationship and told her to give it back. Nonetheless, Alice placed the ring on a ribbon and wore it around her neck. While Alice was in a coma, her brother took the ring and threw it into the creek.

Alice died in her home in Murrells Inlet and was laid to rest in the All Saints Waccamaw Episcopal Church Cemetery. It is believed that her ghost is still searching for the ring. Her last name and dates of birth and death do not appear on her gravestone because her brother wanted her to be forgotten.
