Urban Legends/Ghost Stories

Hey everybody! For my English class, we have to collect folklore from different cultures. If anyone would like to share any stories, legends, or ghost stories, it would be a big help! Thanks!

I know it may be waaaaaaay late, but I'm a kid from a lot of different places. I remember learning from my parents (Growing as a child deeply connected to all his nationalities) that when you yawn you were supposed to cover your mouth. Not of kindness or anything like that, but in order to prevent passage of evil spirits. By the way, its a Native American and Hispanic thing. It goes way back.
