'Dancing Jesus' is a great Middletown myth

At Mount Olivet Cemetery, near Chapel Hill Road, there is a very unique 'suburban legend' involving the famed "Dancing Jesus." Basically, as the legend goes, inside the graveyard a statue of the Lord seems to dance at midnight when there is a full moon.

There are some people who look down on local folklore off-handedly. I think local lore is a part of an area's character and uniqueness.

Weird NJ did a piece about it. Click on the headline to go there.
