After-Supper Ghost Stories
As they relax after dinner on Christmas Eve, members of Uncle John’s family and their guests turn to telling stories about their encounters with ghosts. These supernatural accounts range from the melancholy to the humorous and get increasingly bizarre as the companions get drunker and the talk turns to spirits allegedly residing under the very roof of the house they are sitting in – and one of them decides to investigate whether these apparitions are fact or fiction.
