Ghost Photos From the Whaley House Museum

There is nothing I like more than seeing ghosts caught on tape. I discovered a gallery of ghost photos submitted by visitors of the Whaley House Museum in San Diego, CA. Below are my favourites. See the full online gallery at the Whaley House Museum.

The Dullahan – Ireland’s Headless Horseman

“Clad in flowing black robes, the Dullahan has no head on his shoulders. He carries it with him in his hand, and because he is endowed with supernatural sight, he will hold the head up high. This allows him to see great distances, even on the darkest night.

But beware watching him pass by. You’ll be punished by either having a bucket of blood thrown in your face or you might be struck blind in one eye. The biggest fear of all, however, is if he stops wherever you are and calls out your name. This will draw out your soul and you’ll no longer be among the living.

Unlike the Banshee, which is known to warn of an imminent death in certain families, the Dullahan does not come to warn. He is a definite harbinger of someone’s demise and there exists no defence against him – except perhaps, an object made of gold. For some reason, the Dullahan has an irrational fear of gold and even a tiny amount may be enough to frighten him off.”

The Weird Sisters’ Prophecy

First Witch:
When shall we three meet again
In thunder, lightning, or in rain?

Second Witch:
When the hurly-burly’s done,
When the battle’s lost and won.

Third Witch
:
That will be ere the set of sun.
