Remember when your mother told you to never whistle past the cemetery or hold your breath until the headstones had passed? The word legend tripping comes from a long history of sneaking out past dark to perform some ritual at the local cemetery. These journeys were based on the idea that an urban legend lived nearby and the only way to prove yourself was to go through the motions and become part of the story. Little did you know the town next to you had its own. Join Tripping on Legends as we look at some of the most famous stories involving your local cemetery lore and the most famous urban legends told about the trips we are challenged to make. From Cemetery Mountain in Georgia to Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau’s crypt in New Orleans to Flo’s Grave in Utah, Christopher Balzano and Ella rank some of the creepiest places to Whistle Past the Cemetery.
