One of the best Christmas traditions is telling creepy ghost stories by candlelight, but unlike the tales of Charles Dickens and M.R. James, what if these spooky yarns were not works of fiction, but real-life tales of terror?

In one tale, a wife heads out into the wilds of Wales one chilly Christmas Eve in search of her missing husband, but finds something far more terrifying.

In another, a family ghost appears every festive season with a warning from beyond the grave. But what does it all mean?

For all the spooky answers join author Mark Rees (Ghosts of Wales) as he explores these eerie paranormal encounters on Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast... if you dare!
