.Legend: Chanting “Bloody Mary!” thirteen times in front of a candlelit mirror will summon a vengeful spirit.
Example: [Collected on the Internet, 1995]
If you go into the bathroom and look into the mirror with the lights off and the room completely black, and then say ‘Bloody Mary’ thirteen times, a woman will appear and scratch your face up/off.
I was told that if you said “Hell Mary” seven times in front of a mirror in a dark room, you would see Satan’s image in the mirror. The story was embellished further by the teller, who claimed that after three “Hell Mary”, the mirror turned red, and that after five an unclear face appeared.
Here’s how I always heard the story. You go into a room with a mirror and turn all the lights off (this works well in a bathroom). You begin, in a whisper, to chant “
was that story up there true?
No. It is not real. And although there was a British queen known as “Bloody Mary,” (Mary Queen of Scots) there is no connection between her and the mirror witch. Nor does it have anything to do with Mary Worth.
It’s possible these “mirror witch” games have their roots in oldtime divining rituals involving unmarried girls and future husbands. There are a number of variations of these divinations, some involving chanting a rhyme in a darkened room on a special night and then quickly looking in the mirror to catch a glimpse of the bridegroom-to-be.
The concept of mirrors as portals between this world and the realm of spirits shows up in other beliefs, namely those surrounding funerals. It was common practice to cover mirrors in a house where a death had occurred until the body was taken for burial. (Back in the days before funeral homes, corpses were washed by the deceased’s relatives, dressed in their funeral finery, and laid out in coffins in the front parlor. Consequently, the dead would be in the house for days.) It was believed if the dear departed caught a glimpse of himself in a mirror, his ghost would remain in the house because the mirror would trap his spirit.
It is pure superstition, derived from the nickname of the Queen of the Scots long ago. She was a Catholic queen, and was nicknamed “Bloody Mary” for being intolerant of those who were not Catholic also, having them killed. She even planned to kill Queen Elizibeth I of England for political and religious reasons, since Queen Elizabeth was protestant. Mary was caught and executed.
I don’t know if the ritual of saying “Bloody Mary” in the mirror three times has anything to do with history, but I remember witnessing this as a young kid in the 80’s in a girls bathroom at school so it has probably been around awhile.
No it’s all superstition unless you believe in it….but there’s a true history behind the story of bloody mary she was the former queen of england 😉
No, it is a myth. But there is a place in New Orleans that makes the BEST bloody mary’s. They rock.
