Analysis: The Bloody Mary legend and its several variants date from the 1960s. Like so many folk rituals and traditional tales, its exact origin is impossible to pin down with any specificity. Folklorists didn't begin collecting examples of the text until 1970 or so.

That said, there is a body of myth and superstition attributing magical and/or divinatory properties to mirrors dating back to ancient times. Such beliefs typically contain elements of danger and foreboding. The most familiar of these lingering into modernity is the centuries-old superstition that breaking a mirror brings bad luck. The idea that one can foretell the future by peering into a mirror is even older, described in the Bible (I Corinthians 13) as "see[ing] through a glass, darkly." There are mentions of looking-glass divination in Chaucer's Squire's Tale (c. 1390), Spenser's The Faerie Queen (1590), and Shakespeare's Macbeth (1606), among other early literary sources.

Summoning visions

A particular form of divination associated with Halloween in the British Isles entailed gazing into a mirror and performing a nonverbal ritual to summon a vision of one's future betrothed. This example is from the Poems of Robert Burns, published in 1787:

Take a candle, and go alone to a looking glass; eat an apple before it, and some traditions say, you should comb your hair all the time; the face of your conjugal companion, to be, will be seen in the glass, as if peeping over your shoulder.

Another example of mirror divination, in this case accompanied by ritual chanting, appears in the fairy tale "Snow White," as told by the Brothers Grimm in 1857 (trans. by D.L. Ashliman):

She was a beautiful woman, but she was proud and arrogant, and she could not stand it if anyone might surpass her in beauty. She had a magic mirror. Every morning she stood before it, looked at herself, and said:
Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
Who in this land is fairest of all?

To this the mirror answered:

You, my queen, are fairest of all.
As everyone who grew up reading "Snow White" (or watching the animated Disney version) knows, the mirror-obsessed queen was ultimately destroyed by her own vanity, and it is in this and similar cautionary tales that we see basic elements of the Bloody Mary ritual emerge.

I did when I was a kid. My cousin talked me my bro and my sis into doing it. Nothings going to happen, but in the amount of time it takes to recite the words ur eyes begin adjusting to the dark causing you to see things.

bloody marry is not real. instead, go into your bathroom, shut the lights out, get on your knees, and say "ashy larry" 3 times.
