About Us

Welcome to a comprehensive site for creepy and interesting myths and superstitions. You’ll learn about some of the most popular (and our favorite) urban legends and you’ll kill some time while you should be working. Welcome slackers one and all!

What is an urban legend? According to Webster,

an urban legend is “an often lurid story or anecdote that is based on hearsay and widely circulated as true,” and is sometimes called an urban myth.

As our popularity has grown, we’ve reorganized the site into some new categories so the legends are easier to find. There’s a lot more material now so if you are curious about that last chain email you got, check with us, we’ll tell you it’s crap.

This site was created and is maintained by Lisa Mazzuca from On Your Mark Design and Graphics, an Ocean County, NJ Website Design and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) company. This business, and most of our small business clients, are based in NJ, but we create and optimize websites nationwide. You can see a list of the websites we have created and/or maintain, below.
