Do you believe in ghosts?
I have always had this fear/wish to find myself living in an old haunted house some day. Ghost stories have captivated me for as long as I can remember – but I’m not sure if I would be terrified or fascinated to find myself living with someone stuck between the “here” and the “hereafter”. Probably both, although if I had to guess, I think I would likely lean a little more toward the terrified side. I may love a good scary movie, but that’s because I can tell myself it’s just a movie.
One day years ago, I was having lunch with my aunt and a few of her friends when for some reason they all started telling their own personal ghost stories. Stories about music playing from radios that weren’t turned on, and keys that would go missing and then just show up in the middle of the floor, and phantom dogs, and mysterious knocks on the door at night. I can remember sitting at that table thinking, “this is the best day ever!” Their stories were so darn good.
Truth be told, I’m not even sure I one hundred percent believe ghosts exist. But I have experienced a thing or two that I have no real explanation for. So in the spirit of Halloween, I thought we’d have a little fun and share ghost stories today. 😀
