Help!

Help!

Hanging dolls on trees make the super creepy vision with the unblinking eyes gazing over you will make you feel constantly being watched. Even worst, some people claimed that they heard whispering sounds from the dolls.

Don Julian Santana took up permanent residence int he late 1950′. Local legend maintains that in the 1920s three young girls were playing on the island, only for one of them to drown, falling into the canal’s murky waters close to a small jetty. The nearby residents claimed that the dead girl’s spirit refused to pass on and remained tethered to the island. The area soon gained a degree of infamy and few dared to venture near the supposedly haunted land, especially at night. He used to say that he was haunted by the ghost of the little girl.

Benedict XVI Resignation: First in Over 700 Years!

Pope Benedict XVI

Pope Benedict XVI

Benedict XVI has become the first pope to resign in over 700 years. Cardinals are now begin preparing for a conclave in the Sistine Chapel to elect his successor.

‘Long live the pope!’ a crowd outside chanted as a clock chimed 8 p.m. – the hour that Benedict said he would step down in an announcement earlier this month that stunned the world.

“I will no longer be pope but a simple pilgrim,” the pope told supporters earlier after arriving at Castel Gandolfo from the Vatican in a helicopter that flew as the bells of St Peter’s rang out.

Benedict is only the second pope to resign in the Church’s 2,000-year history, and in his final hours as pontiff he took the unprecedented step of pledging allegiance to his successor.
