We are looking for traditional Christmas ghost stories set in the Appalachian region. Think Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" with an Appalachian backdrop. However, given this example, we want to make sure you understand that stories may be set in any time frame, including the present. We are not interested in tales that disrespect or alter the religious aspects of the holiday.
