La Llorona: a childless (by choice) ghost
Hi everyone! I'm from Latin America and anyone who is from this area knows "La Llorona". She is a phantom dressed in the typical long white dress. If you live near a river or a stream of water you are very likely to have an encounter with her as she always moans "Ay mis hijos!" languished in suffering (at night of course). Many people claim they have heard her, more than the ones who have seen her. It depends on the country you are from the legend differs. In my country she killed her own children drowning them into the river. She could not handle being betrayed by her beloved Spanish lover, who married a rich woman instead. La Llorona was a native Indian woman; therefore, he (a wealthy man) always kept her a secret as well as his offspring. I think this is a very sad legend and may be true.
Do you know of any other legends from broken hearts or so?
