See also

There are several legends about female ghosts. One popular female ghost legend is that of the Lady in White. Many people, young and old, have told tales of their encounters with this type of ghost.

White ladies have been spotted throughout the world. There are stories of White Lady sightings in the United States, Brazil, Iceland, Great Britain, and many other places. It has been said by many people that the place where the White Lady is spotted, is the place where she originally died. If the lady is spotted on a road, she probably died in a car accident or was hit by a car. When a White Lady is seen near a body of water, it is assumed that she had drowned in that body of water.

The White Ladies are usually seen wearing white clothing. Some witnesses have said that the ghosts that they have seen were actually wearing grey clothes. Many times the White Lady is seen wearing Victorian style clothing.

The hair of theses female ghosts is white in color. It usually hangs loose and flows wildly around their heads. Sometimes if the White Lady ghost is younger, she will have bows in her white hair.

The skin of a White Lady is as white as their hair. They usually look the age they were when they passed away. An old woman would have wrinkles while the ghost of a younger female’s skin would look smooth. Some believe the ghost itself age in appearance. They believe that the younger looking ghost will eventually look like an old woman.

The White Ladies haunt the areas where they died because their deaths were tragic. White Ladies may also haunt a place where frequent trauma happened to them when they were alive.

White ladies can be seen by any person, but they are most frequently seen by young children and the elderly. This is because the minds of the young, and the old, are more imaginative. The young and old usually believe in things that others do not.

During sightings, the White Ladies don’t usually notice anything that is happening around them. They usually look like they are waiting for someone, or for something to happen. White ladies are usually unaware to the people around them. Occasionally, a whit lady will approach a child or old person with outstretched arms. The ghost looks as though it is trying to encounter the person but disappears before the person is reached.

There are a few theories as to what happens when a white lady is spotted by the living. If a White Lady is seen by a child, it is said that the ghost blesses the child and that the child remains protected throughout his life. When an old person sees a White Lady, it is said that it is a prediction of the person’s death. Other theories say that nothing happens to the person who sees the ghost of a White Lady.
