On The Eighth Day Of Creepmas... ghoul friend gave to me,

8 Ghosts A Haunting,
7 Rat King heads,
6 cards of evil,
4 squawking crows,
3 ice skulls,
2 bloodshot eyes,
& arachnids in a pine tree!

Just because it's Christmas time doesn't mean ghosts stop haunting. Sure, Halloween is a big day for ghosts, but Christmas is just as good a time for haunting as any! Here are 8 ghosts I cherish during ghoul tide.

Marley & Marley from A Muppet Christmas Carol

The Muppets' critical duo, Statler and Waldorf, get a ghostly make over and become Jacob & Robert Marley, the ghost's of scrooges late business partners. I love their musical number! It's a nice, catchy tune.

Zero from The Nightmare Before Christmas

If you take Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer, turn him into a dog and then kill him, what do you get? You get Zero, The Jack-O-Lantern Nose Ghost Dog! 

The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future in The Real Ghostbusters X-Mas Marks The Spot

Somehow he Ghostbusters travel back in time and straight into Charles Dickens' classic work of fiction, A Christmas Carol. Scrooge's spiritual tormentors are captured by the Ghostbusters and Christmas in the future gets all messed up and stuff. Bah, humbug!

Strong Sad of is "The Ghost of Christmas Suck"
Poor, unloved Strong Sad. Strong Sad is often spoken of as if he's is deceased. Strong Sad's brother, Strong Bad, refers to Strong Sad as "The Ghost of Christmas Suck" in The Homestar Runner Gets Something Stuck In His Craw. Poor sad, lonely, depressing Strong Sad!

Michael Keaton is Jack Frost

This movie is pure cheese! Michael Keaton (Batman) is a loving, rock n' roll daddy that is killed in a tragic car accident on Christmas night. A year later his ghost posses a creepy as heck snowman that his son built. Great movie for fans of campy, high budget Christmas movies.

Who are your favorite Creepmas Ghosts?


  1. I love Statler & Waldorf! They crack me up!

  2. Yeah, they're a riot! They are some tough old hagglers and they always come back with a good zinger! Jim Henson is the best! I just love ALL his wonderful Muppets!
