The three ghosts of Christmas join their Kindred Spirits on Destination America’s 12 Nights of a Haunting.
In Charles Dickens’ perennial chestnut A Christmas Carol, a greedy miser is haunted by three ghosts in the days leading to his reformation. Ebenezer Scrooge got off easy compared to the team at Destination America, which is gifting us with at least a dozen ghosts in their upcoming 12 Nights of a Haunting. Jacob Marley and his nocturnal friends will drop the chains they linked day by day near a couch for a weekly visit from Kindred Spirits. Destination America will serve up the “nightmare before Christmas” every night, starting Wednesday, December 20, through Sunday, December 31, for a primetime marathon of A Haunting.
But in the best spirit of things to come, the cable network will also present an all-day New Year’s Day marathon of Kindred Spirits culminating in “Don’t Go in the Attic,” a never-before-seen episode from season 2, which premieres Monday, January 1 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
“A family living in fear considers selling their house because of violent paranormal activity,” reads the official synopsis of “Don’t Go in the Attic.”
“They’ve seen a box cutter hurdled through the air, a paper towel dispenser unroll before their eyes and even experienced hair pulling. This is enough to make anyone consider selling their home, but Adam and Amy kick off an investigation into the family and their home’s history. They soon discover that one of the spirits haunting the home has a vital message to deliver; a message that could determine the fate of an entire family.”
Hosted by paranormal investigators Amy Bruni and Adam Berry, Kindred Spirits showcases “some of the scariest stories of supernatural activity,” according to the show’s synopsis. “Through spellbinding first-person accounts, each episode profiles one family’s ghostly encounters. As the mystery and origin of each case is unraveled, audiences are left with a lingering sense that life after death is much more powerful than anyone could have possibly imagined.”
Following the charitable tradition of the holidays, Amy and Adam spend their time helping “real families who are tormented by paranormal activity in their homes. With the added stress that the spirits may be their own late family members, each episode introduces a new family that seeks help from Amy and Adam.” But where were they on Black Friday?
