bloody mary

by Lilian

la llorona

in Latin American folklore, la llorona is a ghost who roams waterfront areas mourning her drowned children


the legend has a wide variety of details and versions

in a typical version of the legend, a beautiful woman named Maria marries a rich ranchero with whom she bears two children

one day, Maria sees her husband with another woman and in a fit of blind rage, she drowns their children in a river, which she immediately regrets

unable to save them and consumed by guilt, she drowns herself as well but is unable to enter the afterlife without her children
