"The vessel. Joseph trying to get close enough to see what was happening. Someone from the Coast Guard was seeing something to the crowd out. Oh right he remembered they said there would be a ceremony. The man began telling the story of the rouse. Simmons he said something about a guy nine named Herman. He gestured at the water. Joseph is only vaguely paying attention. Another soldier tossed a wreath into the water to mark the spot. Then there was a moment of silence for the lives lost as the crowd dispersed Joseph near the edge of the boat it he saw the man again the fake Santa only this time the man was in the water and screaming for help he was is floating a few feet away from the wreath and he wasn't alone he was with all the men from the photograph all of whom appeared to be drowning screaming screaming for help. Joseph looked around at the other passengers but none of them seem to notice or care. There were plenty of far more qualified people around. Who who could help them? Maybe they were re-enactors. What a weird tradition? But nobody was watching and the boat was starting again again as it pulled away. Joseph followed the scene has he traced the railing to the back of the boat. He watched the wreath flowed over to one of the men struggling to to keep his head above water he grabbed it but the wreath went under and the man with him. Even if it was a reenactment he was drowning. Joseph ran over to a woman with a clipboard and ask about the men in the water. She was confused if he was referring to the men who who had drowned in one thousand nine hundred twelve their bodies were never found. He wasn't he meant the men in the water right over there. He shouted louder there. There were so many people around but they were all staring at him blankly. Joseph began to panic he was now the center of attention and the boat was getting further away from the men who needed their help. The screams of the men might as well be right next to him. Joseph Spun around. He needed help. Nope someone needed to help the woman with the clipboard grabbed his shoulders. She told them that they were helping by delivering trees to families. Who deserve them? No jokes felt crazy. was everyone just going to let those men Di was he witnessing cult a coastguard conspiracy. Who we're those men? Where were the life preservers? Joseph broke free from the woman. He was trapped a crowd. He tried to reason with strangers but everyone was staring at him like he was the crazy one. They were going to be bystanders. To the death of every man out there to members of the Coast Guard rushed to him grabbed him and tried to bring him the way that the screams of men persisted as if they were inches from where he stood. Joseph wasn't strong enough to overtake the members of the Coast Guard so he didn't resist as they held him in place. He apologized for making a scene. Over and over until they release their grips the next time that Joseph's on opportunity. He took it. He sprinted for the railing and vaulted over it toward the dark water. The impact impact Joseph hitting the lake almost knocked the wind out of him. The ICY temperatures shocked every nerve in his body. He wasn't a good swimmer but he had added in his mind. Just follow the screams of the men. So that's exactly what he did. He took a big breath and swam. He had no plan for when he got to the man but he traveled with purpose. He paid no mind to the rescue team that swam after him as he swam up. The icy currents numb his body. Contrary to everything he should be feeling he started to feel a warp inside of him like the water was not not bitter but comfortable Coz even he felt like he was back in bed with a fire by aside the crowd aboard the mackinac. God didn't see a boy swimming anywhere but down to the bottom of the lake. The rescuers dove after him but they lost him. They wait expecting acting into surface but he didn't the next day. A team of divers searched the lake for Joseph but his body. I never found today. You can still see the mackinac delivering trees in Chicago every Christmas in memory of the Rouse Simmons. Men's and its Captain Herman shoot him in and who knows if you're not careful you might see the rouse Simmons sailing. Its waters as well weeding to celebrate the holidays.

"Was numb from looking. There were two lost girls on water beach. Each and Amelia was one of them on the Twelfth Day of looking. Amelia gave up. Her lips were salty from tears. Here's she sat down the beach and scream and it didn't come running instead. A bottle washed up at Amelia's feed the glass was stained red. It had a green ribbon tied around its neck and on the tag where the words to Amelia from your sister. It had a piece of parchment inside. She looked out to see where it came from. But there Renault boats on the lake. She smashed the bottle on a rock in messy scrawled handwriting. That was unmistakably her sisters. Were two words safe me and it wasn't just Christmas trees and a wallet that washed ashore from the rouse Simmons after it sank in nineteen twelve the areas divide items washed ashore in the weeks after it sank. It was a message in a bottle though. The message. Technically could have been from a number of ships that were lost during the same storm. The bottle was correct with cut. Pinewood inside was this note. Vote Friday everybody goodbye. I guess we are all through during the night. The small boat washed overboard leaking leaking bad involved in Steve Lost to God. Elba's coming up the legend of the rouse. Simmons lives on in Chicago now back to the story today. The memory of the row Simmons lives on in Chicago's holiday traditions. Its arrival is reenacted by the US coastguard with ship called called the mackinac with the assistance of hundreds of volunteers. Thousands of trees are delivered by boat every year and given to families who otherwise could not afford them. It's organized by the Chicago Christmas Ship Committee and assisted by the Coast Guard navy. Pier Ada s Mckinley Community Services and countless countless private individuals among the many volunteers are members of the young marines. Most interesting fact about Joseph Skull Dini was that he was a young marine so it came up fairly frequently. The self proclaimed professional stonier dropped it in casual conversation whenever Holland High School Faculty members were around. He had signed up as a joke in two thousand nine the same year that the lonely island released their hit single. I'm on a boat. Featuring t pain four years later the killer facebook profile picture took it was no longer relevant. But he couldn't quit now. He was stuck college. Applications were around the corner. Iran had already quit everything else if his last two. PSAT's scores were any indication he was going to need the young marine scientists applications. It wasn't that being a young marine was going to kill Joseph. It's just that the young marines appreciated leadership teamwork discipline Glen and a healthy drug free lifestyle and Joseph shared his. Life's motto live moths with his favorite fast food restaurant in in his world. Discipline meant completing no shave November. He knew exactly how many young marine events he could skip before getting kicked out and he had missed all of them he should have attended the Brookdale retirement home event. At least the elderly were kind of hilarious. This and now. He had to spend Saturday at the local tree farm. Joseph jumped at the chainsaw. Few feet away. Someone should have warned him. That there would be so many saws. He didn't sign up for Friday. The thirteenth signed up for a Christmas Carol. Today's invent involved loading Christmas trees from the tree farm onto a boat headed for Chicago and then onto trucks the trucks would then deliver them to the less fortunate. The boat is the middleman seemed pointless to Joseph pointless activities aside he would get through today's event like he got through all with them keeping quiet always walking with purpose and without a destination and we'd there were plenty of people fighting to do the work. It was like the Olympics of charity. Everyone was in competition to be seen doing the most honestly Joseph did anything more he'd be stealing their joy Oy by the time eleven. AM rolled around. All the trees loaded onto the boat. There were more than a thousand. Joseph helped lift two of them and and directed like six now that he was on the boat. Joseph needed a sit down because he wasn't feeling well he couldn't pinpoint what was making him feel. Also ill then just paranoia was worse than usual. He kept hearing voices like people were talking about him behind his back. He hadn't felt this way since his first bong hit in sixth grade all of a sudden someone grabbed his shelter. It was a man tall handsome and smiling. He was dressed in an old fashioned. Sailor's outfit the man asked how Joseph was doing and then commented commented. On the beautiful weather did the man know about the blunt in Joseph's pocket could he see it in his is his name tags said Santa Santa did that mean he's important. No all Joseph had to do was be cool. It's just another human being asking another human being seeing how they're doing that's what people do often. He reached into his pocket to make sure he has eyedrops. He had already used them as long as Joseph responded. Everything would be fine. Joseph told the man he was good in that yes. The weather was also good but the conversation didn't end. The man asks Joseph where he planned on spending. The holidays did the man. No Joseph's parents did he know. Repeat on one of the trees. It was an accident. Not all trees go into people's homes. It's an honest mistake after what could have been a second indoor ten minutes Joseph Toba Santa Man that he wasn't sure that seemed to do the trick. The man laughed told Joseph that hoped wherever he ended up would be nice and walked away forty minutes later Joseph was feeling much better he had confidently paste the ship a few times. He went below deck and used the head. He said hi to someone. He didn't know he was doing well. He was even getting used to the voices voices. The next time he saw the man with Santa Name Tag it was a black and white photograph hanging on a wall of the ship. The man wasn't alone he was with a number of other sailors. They are obviously invested in the authenticity and period nature of today's event they were wearing outfits from the early twentieth century. Joseph supposed it was a nod to the original Christmas tree ship. The photograph didn't make Joseph Field. Good go he couldn't tell if needed to smoke more or less. He could've sworn the men were bleeding from their eyes but when he did a double take back they were still just adult men. Playing dress up. The boat came to a stop. Everyone else on board seemed to know what was going on. Except up for Joseph they were all gathering on one side of.

Pet Water Michigan. It was just a mile from their home and the two girls weren't supposed to be in the house until dark. In order from their parents parents. That was fine enough for Amelia. As the eldest she set the parameters for their games. Currently the sisters were role playing a scientists and they were hunting for polished stones to sell to the Queen of England in exchange for gold even in their make believe world but girls had no grand plans for the gold more than anything thirteen year. Old Amelia and ten year old. Hannah wanted new school uniforms so that they wouldn't attract so many snickers stairs Hannon was relegated to the scientists assistant while Amelia played the scientist and the Queen of England had his protests for more exciting. Eating part fell on deaf ears. She was always had Amelia's whim as Hannah wandered away from her sister to find a perfect rock. She heard heard a blood curdling. Scream had a new. The screen was Amelia. She walked back to find her. There was no need to Ron. CAMELIA wasn't in any danger. Hannah had just wandered too far away. It was Amelia's way of teaching Hannah lesson. The first time it happened Hannah was terrified. Refined three years earlier had sprinted to her sister assuming that she would find her hurt bleeding or worse instead. Emilia was waiting eating arms crossed explaining that of Hannah gone too far away. Something could happen to them. They were better in numbers. Hannah felt terrible. That and but by today Amelie had cried wolf a few too many times justice. Hannah suspected her sister was fine. The game continue and you don and Hannah continued to press her lock. She had found a set of footprints nearby and she wanted to follow them. They were big Ammann's but they seem to come out of the water and make their way to the pier. She followed the footprints all the way to a small rock formation laying against the rocks. This was an evergreen tree and a glass bottle both on their sides. She wasn't interested in the tree. They're family sold Christmas trees. She was much much more interested in the glass bottle. It was stained green and had to be worth something as dumb game. She picked it up. Maybe she wouldn't share it with her sister if she did. Amelia might take it and it was hers. It said some on the tag to Hannah from Captain Santa she turned and saw the footprints leading under the pier and into the water and as she she did immediately let her know that she had wondered too far. It wasn't until Hannah went to bed that she took the bottle out of. Its hiding place Jason under her mattress. She wanted to read what Captain Santa had written to her. She hadn't thought that Santa was a sailor but she wasn't surprised prized his sleigh was really just a flying boat. Hannah needed to make sure Amelia was asleep so she got up to place a hand in front of Amelia's alias. Face Amelie was breathing through her mouth. She was asleep. Hanna slipped on socks and snuck out of the room. Luckily she didn't didn't have to pass her parents bedroom to get to the kitchen. As long as she was quiet she would be fine. Their family kept one of the few electric glide. Stay into the kitchen. She could reach it fine dark. She knew the Path while twenty paces down the hall left then at immediate right she felt for the light and clicked it on. The bottle was more beautiful than she remembered to Hannah. From from Captain Santa She had written letters to Santa for years but now he was writing back. She shook the wooden uncork loose. Tip The bottle over and let the parchment drift onto the hardwood floor. This was it in shiny red ink was a message that made her heart skip a couple of beats come celebrate Christmas with me she. It'll be our secret. She couldn't contain excitement. How could she be so lucky? She fought back to how she behaved that here. She hadn't been a good student or a good sister. She complained about her chores Andrew Schoolwork but she didn't do her chores and she did finish her schoolwork. Eventually she also hadn't pummeled Erin Sullivan in the school yard and Erin Sullivan deserved to be pummeled. Maybe Hannah was being rewarded for her restraint restraint ultimately. It didn't matter why what mattered was that it was happening. She turned off the light and ran back to her room buried under her covers. She couldn't sleep. Not Sleeping. became a pattern in the days to come. She would try to go to bed but she couldn't. She would lie awake dreaming Effort Day with Santa. Hannah didn't tell anyone that she wasn't sleeping. Not even after she began to hallucinate that the walls were leaking water not even when she started seeing the figure of a man standing in the yard outside at her window at night. She confided in Amelia but Amelia. Promise that it was only her imagination. At first Mr Mrs Fisher were only worried about their daughter because she was so well behaved. Hannah did everything she was told without complaint. It wasn't until they noticed. Hannah's Hannah's hollow eyes and cheeks that they became concerned. She was eating class. Hanna insisted she was fine. She was just excited for Christmas. But what Christmas had to do with Hannah spending every evening by the pier at Penn Water Beach. Nobody was sure it didn't matter. How severe weather was she would watch the waves crash under the shore until dinnertime the media would invent new games aims even promise that Hannah could be whatever she wanted? Hannah couldn't tell her sister that she was waiting for another sign from Santa so she just stared it into her sister's is until they welled with tears and she ran away then. Hannah got sick pneumonia. Her parents took her out of school for Baiter leaving the House. They demanded that she stay in bed until she got better. She didn't disobey them. Santa Anti wouldn't want her to instead. She lay there motionless and vacant for days even as doctors family friends and priests priests came to check on her even as she listened to her sister. Cry Herself to sleep every night. Hannah stayed in bed until Christmas. Dismissive came in the middle of the night. Amelia jolted up from the death sleep. She heard the front door slam. She knew who it was even before she checked. Hannah was gone. It was pitch black when the fishers reached pent water beach whatever footprints there would be gone by the morning ruined by the wind and waves their shots for their daughter could barely be heard over. The crashing. Entire is Hannah Fisher was reported missing to the police on Christmas morning in the investigations to come. No sign Ore Body was found for two weeks. After Hannah disappeared.

"Up after it was caught in a storm. Yeah. Herman still stayed in the business until one dark night in nineteen twelve Herman was in his prime is ship captain, and he departed for very late November voyage from Wisconsin to Chicago, which was very dangerous because there would be a lot of storms and stuff around that time lot of snow, right? So the weather was extremely rough. It was fully loaded with an oversize load of trees some reports say that there were fifty five hundred trees on the ship. Yeah. That's a lot of trees, and when the ship left, the harbour that day people have stated that the rats that were on board in their on board a lot of ships, especially back, then started to leave the ship, and that is considered a very bad sign for sailor animals. No, they do like forest fires and earthquakes and all that stuff. They get out. They were really, you know, they they sense it. Yeah. Definitely seen that yet. Yeah. It's a shame that we don't think like them. I see Recco. And but I mean, if you see a wreck going in one direction, you're probably not gonna foul. That's I want to do with the acts. Navy this rats are. All right. Yeah. But maybe we should be following the leave us alone though. But you know, he probably should have known because the weather was extremely rough. You know, he was going on at three hour tour. So no, I'm just kidding. But not much is known of what exactly happened to the rue Simmons on that trip. But lifesaving station. Logs testified that a two fifty PM on Saturday November twenty third a surf man at the. Kiwani Wisconsin station alerted the station. Keeper kept in Nelson crate the rouse. Simmons was spotted heading south flying its flag at half mast, which is a sign of distress crate try to find a tugboat to help the rue Simmons. But the tugboat had already won out the morning and was not near the area. The rue Simmons drifted out of you and little is known of the exact moment of the ship's final demise. But it is believed that the ship was too heavily overburden and combined with the fierce winter storm. It was just too much for the ship. Herman's wife, Barbara waited at the dock the day. She expected to see her husband, but he did not make it. This was not uncommon though in those days ships would sometimes bunker down in a local port when there was a bad storm incite in Herman had done this multiple times. But as days turned into weeks, she knew she would not see him again the next few weeks. Wisconsin residents reported seeing remains of Christmas trees drifting onto nearby beaches. That's she wasn't. She didn't wait a the dot for days. No, no, no. She only waited they're short while. Okay. And then she figuring achieve visited every day. I'm sure I'm sure she did and in nineteen twenty four. So that happened in nineteen twelve so twelve years later, a fishing vessel pulled up its net to find a wallet wrapped in oilskin. It was the wallet of captain Herman Scheunemann. I've also heard that a bottle carrying a message drifted onto shore carrying a message from captain Scheunemann, saying his parting words of goodbye. Barber in the kids carried on the tradition of selling Christmas trees in honor of of Herman oftentimes from a boat docked on Clark street in when Barbara met her end in nineteen thirty three daughters continued selling them as well from their family lot. In nineteen seventy one. The wreck itself was discovered discovered by scuba diver named Gordon Kent bell rich from from the walkie their cans. We had a plan. He was searching for another wreck vessel, and he knew right away that this was the Christmas ship because he saw several Christmas trees in the ship's. Hold. It has been said that over the years a couple of ghostly things have happened though. I'll here we go spire in the ghost part. It's not just as sad story. It's got a it's got a ghostly part. I is that when people visit the grave grave of Barbara Scheunemann in the wintertime there is often a faint smell of evergreen trees. Although no one around our there's none around her grave and on the second ghostly occurrence is that people have reported seeing three masted old timey sailboat in Lake Michigan in sometimes here phantom bells, which is the last sound that is heard from a sinking ship. Yeah. It's really sad. And then doesn't he have a Ziva grave by his wife? I mean, not with his body. But yeah, I I would imagine the body is not there. Yeah. Do they know what kind of message was sent? And yet, it was basically saying goodbye, it was it reported that Friday. It was time to say goodbye in that the that the ship was overburdened, and it was going down. And he mentioned two of his shipmates that you know, that had escaped they were never found. So it wasn't a pine Kuna bottle. No, not a pinecone in a bottle. If it was overweighted. I mean, you think rose raw roll them off. They were greedy degreed probably got the best of them nine. They wanted to give it to the needy bell. So they're not around. Yeah. I just figured you know, he already went bankrupt with his other. Yeah. It was like, you know, what I need every pine tree. I can get this. Life's worth. I mean, this is this is what he did to people loved him for this. But maybe taking off. Yeah. Definitely definitely. And that was probably the problem is that he, you know, his eyes were were really big. Yeah. Bigger than his wallet. Every single tree looks like a one dollar builder. Yeah. The most expensive tree. Oh, well, this was nineteen twelve twelve. So a dollar was a what? Yeah. And he had sticks and sticks our bills. Yeah. Yeah. I mean the Christmas mood now. Yeah. Ghost christmas. I like it. All right. So does anybody have anything to add? I was just wondering back to the PLO. Yes. Had for benchers grove AO. I don't really wanna talk about that eleven percent of the people. You said didn't or were unsure. No, they were. They said no that it's not haunted. So those eleven percent have never been there. Yeah. And twenty two percent that are unsure right? Yes. They have never been there. Yeah. Well, that's actually forty forty four percent are kind of on the two two scales of they're not sure. So I believe none of them have ever stepped foot in the benchers grove. So maybe that should be another pull out of the people that voted. Have they ever been there? Well, we're we're gonna have some polls for this episode to I don't know exactly what they're going to about since. We're not doing a debate. But we have to hear favorite go story, which one is your favorite. Yeah. It's going to be killed. Prices the mistletoe Brian. It's kept in Santa. Look at Mondo. He so nice. Yeah. He's not. All right.
