The Unwanted Visitor: A Christmas Scary Story for Bedtime

It was a snowy Christmas Eve, and the Anderson family was gathered in their cozy, candle lit living room, nestled deep within a forested valley. The scent of freshly baked gingerbread cookies filled the air, and the flickering fireplace cast dancing shadows on the walls. The family had been eagerly awaiting this night, a cherished tradition of coming together to celebrate the joy of the season.

In the center of the room, a lavishly decorated Christmas tree stood tall, adorned with glistening ornaments and shimmering lights. Underneath, wrapped presents of all sizes lay in joyful anticipation. The Andersons had spared no effort in creating a festive atmosphere, and their laughter echoed through the halls.

As the clock struck midnight, signaling the arrival of Christmas Day, the family gathered around the tree to exchange gifts. The children’s eyes sparkled with excitement as they unwrapped their treasures, their laughter filling the room. It was a picture-perfect holiday scene—one that warmed the heart and filled the soul.

But as the family reveled in their Christmas merriment, a strange feeling settled over them. A chilling draft seemed to sweep through the room, extinguishing the candles one by one. The cozy warmth of the fireplace flickered and waned, leaving behind a shadowy darkness.

Mrs. Anderson shivered and glanced around. “Did anyone leave a window open?” she asked, puzzled.

Mr. Anderson checked the windows, but they were securely closed. “Strange,” he mumbled, “I could have sworn I heard the wind.”

The children exchanged uneasy glances, but their parents assured them it was just their imagination playing tricks on them. After all, it was Christmas, a time for joy and celebration.

As the night deepened, and the children nestled into their beds, the house grew eerily quiet. The only sounds were the soft rustling of leaves outside and the distant hoot of an owl. The Andersons lay in their beds, struggling to shake off the unease that had settled over them.

But soon, they heard something that sent shivers down their spines—a soft, ghostly whisper that seemed to come from the shadows. “Unwanted… Unwanted…”

Mr. Anderson sat up in bed, his heart racing. “Did anyone hear that?” he asked his wife.

She nodded, her eyes wide with fear. “I heard it too. It sounded like it came from the hallway.”

Together, they tiptoed out of their room and ventured into the darkened hallway. The whisper grew louder and more distinct, and they could make out the words, “Unwanted… Unwanted… Christmas… Unwanted…”

They followed the haunting voice to the living room, where the Christmas tree stood, its lights flickering erratically. The ornaments swayed as if moved by an invisible hand, and the presents beneath the tree seemed to shift on their own.

And there, standing in the center of the room, was a shadowy figure—a tall, gaunt silhouette with long, bony fingers. It whispered the word “Unwanted” over and over, its voice a haunting echo in the stillness of the night.

The Andersons watched in horror as the figure moved closer to the tree, its dark presence causing the ornaments to shatter and the lights to sputter and die. The presents began to unravel, their contents spilling out onto the floor.

Desperate to protect their home and their children, Mr. Anderson called out, “Who are you? What do you want?”

The figure turned to them, its face hidden in the shadows. “Unwanted… I am the Unwanted Visitor. I come to those who have forgotten the true spirit of Christmas.”

Mrs. Anderson stepped forward, her voice trembling but determined. “We haven’t forgotten. We love Christmas. We cherish its joy and warmth.”

The Unwanted Visitor seemed to pause, as if considering her words. “Prove it,” it whispered, and with a wave of its hand, the room was filled with the chilling cold of winter. Frost coated the walls, and the family’s breath turned to icy vapor.

The Andersons huddled together, determined to show their love for Christmas. They began to sing carols, their voices breaking through the icy grip of the Unwanted Visitor. The Christmas tree lights flickered back to life, and the ornaments reassembled themselves, shining brighter than ever.

The Unwanted Visitor recoiled, its form wavering in the face of the family’s love and Christmas spirit. “No… No!” it cried, its voice fading into the shadows. “I am unwanted here.”

With one final, desperate whisper, the Unwanted Visitor vanished, leaving the Andersons in the warmth and light of their restored Christmas celebration.

The family rejoiced, knowing that the true spirit of Christmas had triumphed over the eerie presence that had threatened to darken their holiday. They shared hugs and laughter, their hearts filled with love and gratitude for the joy that Christmas had brought them.

And so, as the clock struck midnight once more, signaling the end of Christmas Day, the Andersons drifted off to sleep, their dreams filled with the magic of the season. They knew that the Unwanted Visitor would never return as long as their hearts remained filled with the love and joy of Christmas—a lesson they would carry with them for the rest of their lives.

As the first light of dawn broke through the curtains, the Andersons awoke to find their home bathed in the soft, golden glow of the morning sun. The frost had melted away, leaving behind a world transformed by the power of love and the true spirit of Christmas.

And as they gathered around the Christmas tree one last time, they knew that this would be a holiday they would cherish forever—a Christmas when the darkness had been vanquished, and the light of love had shone brighter than ever before.
