Bloody Mary: Summoning Spirits or Ordering Drinks?

Bloody Mary: Summoning Spirits or Ordering Drinks?

Back when I was a little girl, I was at a slumber party and distinctly remember the other girls at the party wanted to play “Bloody Mary“. I am not sure if I had heard of the legend before that moment or if they explained it to me, but I knew I wanted nothing to do with it.
