Kittens, today puts us 66 days from Halloween, a lovely alliteration that signals fall weather just around the corner. In anticipation of those first hints of russet and umber in summer’s greenery, I thought we’d start the week with something a little spooky – List 25’s 25 Cemeteries That Will Scare You Out Of Your Skin. From labyrinthine catacombs below Paris, to the unassuming Stull Cemetery in Kansas rumored to contain one of the seven gates to Hell, this list is chock full of lovely, creepy cemeteries, interesting (and at times dubious) trivia, and all the ghosts you can squeeze into 12 short minutes.
