Everyone keeps up with their entertainment by cooking up some stories. Every country has one or another interesting stories attached to it which might sound creepy to some people. Few people believe these creepy stories to be true and some only referred to them as Legends. If you think that only your city or country has this story then you might be wrong. The world is full of strange Legends where everyone has one or another storyteller. According to some people, there is a land called the Alaska Triangle which is quite strange. It is referred to as strange because people believe that in this triangle only the Spirits live. The interesting fact to support this philosophy is that whoever has ever visited this Triangle was never seen again. There are so many urban stories and legends that you might have not heard of. Today we are going to tell you a few of these urban stories which are quite famous all around the world.

Japan

There is a famous spirit named Hanako-san in Japan which is quite a famous story. Many children have tried to Conjure their spirits to this ghost. The easiest way to summon your spirit to this goes is to take her name and ask if she is there. If she is around she'll be asking where her legs are. This usually takes place in a bathroom. It is a bathroom ghost that is basically made up to scare off the girls. It has not yet been proven but the legends believe that one can see a girl in the bathroom if they can have proper communication. Some believe that she has stuck herself into some kind of time loop since the time of World War 2 and the others believe that she died due to some horrifying incident in the bathroom and is still Haunting the young girls.

France

There is a popular Legend in France where it is believed that people who drive at night may encounter the spirit of a hitchhiker.

Brazil

Brazil is not behind in certain creepy and funny legends. The children are very creative and you can estimate this thing by listening to the story.

United States

In the United States, it is believed that a very creepy creature which is named as the Jersey Devil happens to reside in the pine barrens.

Finland

In Finland a famous Legend of a shape-shifting spirit known as Nakii is famous. According to the stories this creature lives under a bridge and is mostly after the children.

Also, not many people have seen this dog.
