LadyVampire's Halloween Giveaway Day 1
Contest Day One
Today officially kicks off my Halloween Giveaway and I’m really looking forward to seeing everyone’s comments!
Some people believe in ghosts and while others do not. Personally I believe there is an afterlife but also a place where spirits get stuck in between. And yes, I have seen ghosts many times. Strangers and relatives. Some experiences have been very frightening while others left me with a sort of strange calm in myself. And today I’m asking you to share your ghost stories with me. I’ll start everyone off with one of my own…
"My aunt Francis died some years back. I remember the day because I was in the kitchen cooking when I thought I saw someone walk across a doorway in the adjoining living room. I went to check but no one was there. So I went back to cooking but heard noise in the other room now, like a kind of knocking and footsteps. When I turned toward the room I definitely saw a person go past the doorway but even though I searched the whole house, I found no one. Then the third time I went back to the kitchen, I barely got my hands around the spoon to stir in my pot when the living room went crazy with pounding footsteps like someone was jumping all over crazily and knocking into the walls and furniture. I nearly knocked the pot off the stove as I ran into my living room. No one was there but this time the sound stayed and I stood there scared and concerned in the middle of the day wondering what the heck was going on. Suddenly the phone rang and I went into the kitchen to answer it. The sound stopped as I picked up the phone. My cousin was on the phone telling me my aunt had just died minutes before she called, around the same time I heard and saw everything. Eerily I think she was saying goodbye, but she scared me saying it the way she did."
So now that I’ve shared my story, please share yours. And if you haven’t got a story then you either tell me the best ghostly book you’ve read or share your opinion on if you believe in ghosts or not.
Please feel free to comment to this post until October 11th when the contests close. One entry per person per day per post. This contest is limited to US citizens only although everyone is invited to comment.
