Other participants will have their own themes. Check them out by clicking on the the blue button of the blog hop badge in the sidebar. It will take you to the entire list of awesome bloggers.

B is for Bogeyman.

The bogeyman is an imaginary evil being who hides under the bed or in the closet and frightens children into good behavior. He has also appeared in fantasy and crime fiction as a nebulous antagonist, and the label has been applied to especially brutal unknown killers. Since no one has actually seen the bogeyman, this pictorial representation is as good as any.

B is also for Banshee, a female omen of death. She warns those she loves with a soft, gentle song, but gives a piercing demonic wail to gloat over the death of her enemies. The banshee is a figure from Irish/Scottish legends.

Scary day. I was sure there was a Bogeyman in the bathroom mirror when I was a child. And the old Disney TV movie about Banshees scared the sleep out of me as a child!

Bathroom mirror? That must have made washing your hands a traumatic event. :)

The superstitious Mama tried to keep me in line a lot with the bogeyman when I was a kid. It didn't work all the time. lol

Kids are so resilient. Sometimes were more intrigued than scared by the monsters. :)
