Truckers and midnight car enthusiasts often talk about a white shadow that appears out of nowhere in the dark. She either throws herself under the wheels, or is reflected in the distant view mirror, or votes by the road. Pedestrians also occasionally notice a light silhouette flying past them in a split second. Is this an optical illusion or a real ghost?
Let's talk about the White Woman - a ghost that has been roaming the globe for several centuries in a row and never finds peace.
The white lady is found in different cultures. You will find references to her in European, American, Thai and Philippine mythologies. The stories about the origin of the ghost differ depending on the region, but they are always associated with some tragic events. During her lifetime, the Woman in White was either married to an unpleasant person and committed suicide, or suffered from violence, or lost her beloved man and could not survive it.
As a rule, light-colored ghost robes are associated with a wedding dress, but sometimes they are perceived as a shroud. Most often, the White Lady is described as a woman of indeterminate age with long flowing hair, sad eyes and an iconographic elongated face. According to some legends, the ghost walks with bloody hands.
Despite the dark veil, the White woman is rarely associated with evil spirits. On the contrary, apparently, during her lifetime, this lady was deeply religious. She does not tolerate blasphemy and can severely punish him. Sometimes, by the way, she is identified with a banshee - a fairy who takes care of the family.
