Non Sequitur

Bloody Mary is the nickname the English people gave Mary Tudor, The Daughter of Henry the 8th {the infamous 6 wife tyrant} and his first wife Katherine of Aragon. Mary took after her mother as a devout catholic and when she took the throne after her father and her little brother Edward died, she worked to bring England back to the Catholic religion that her father had demolished and attempted to restore, after her father died, her brother took the throne bringing back the Protestant religion. When she took to the throne to bring back the opposition of Catholic Religion in England she burned thousands of Protestants as heretics; giving her the name ‘Bloody Mary’ {It was even rumored that she bathed in virgin girls blood to keep young, which is probably as old wives tale … or maybe not!}

Urband Legend
The legend claims that the evil woman can be summoned by chanting “Bloody Mary” into a mirror anywhere from three to one-hundred times in a darkened room lit only by a candle. (Thirteen seems to be the most popular number of chants, appropriately so.) The bathroom is the most popular setting to test out the legend, but other dark rooms seem applicable.

After the given amount of chants, the spirit will then appear in a mirror and claw your eyes out and death will follow. Other variations have her driving you insane or pulling you into the mirror, never to be seen again.
