The boogeymanis a folkloric or legendary ghostlike monster often believed in by children. The bogeyman has no specific appearance, and conceptions of the monster can vary drastically even from household to household within the same community; in many cases he simply has no set appearance in the mind of a child, but isjust an amorphous embodiment of terror.
Bogeyman can be used metaphorically to denote a person or thing of which someone has an irrational fear. Parents often say that if their child is naughty, the bogeyman will get them, in an effort to make them behave. The bogeyman legend may originate from Scotland, where such creatures are sometimes called bogles, boggarts, or bogies
Bogeyman tales vary by region. In some places the bogeyman is male; in others, female, and in others, both. In some Midwestern statesof the United States, the bogeyman scratches at the window. In other places he hides under the bed or in the closet and tickles children when they go to sleep at night. It is said that a wart can be transmitted to someone by the bogeyman.1 Bogeymen may be said to target a specific mischief for instance, a bogeyman that punishes children who suck their thumbs or general misbehavior. To Summon the Shadow Natum ad a necral dona in tan la noc. To Banish the Shadow I am light. I am one too strong to fight. Return to dark where shadows dwell. As you here these words resistants will dispell. Go away and leave my sight. And take with you this endless night.
