Sometimes, it’s best not to know what goes bump in the night.
A group of people affected by the paranormal have come forward to share the experiences they can’t explain.
The community used online forum Reddit to share their terrifying tales of ghosts, ghouls and things that were not quite right.
As one user said: ‘There is no supernatural, there are only things we don’t understand yet.’
Ghosts Just Want To Have Fun
“When I was about 8 I woke up at my grandparents house to my cousin saying, “Wake up lets play hide and go seek!”
I looked around couldn’t find her. “She said don’t quit come and find me.”
I searched high and low. She spoke to me in all different parts of the house. Finally I burst into my parents room and said, “Is Ellen hiding in here?”
And they said, ‘She isn’t coming until tomorrow’.”
Always Keep The Light On
"I lived in a pretty old house when I was a kid (built in the 1880's I believe), and a family friend always liked to go on about how it was haunted. Really the only weird thing I ever saw happen took place one morning at breakfast. I was eating cereal with my sister, doing kid stuff, and she eventually left the table. Not 10 seconds after she left, the fully-functioning light bulb in the ceiling fixture fell directly onto the chair where she was sitting. Not super spooky, but it was still weird."
A Grandmother Knows
"My grandmother also suffers from severe dementia. She was in a different ward than my grandfather, who was in the alzheimers ward. A few months ago my grandfathers blood pressure dropped and he collapsed. He was dead before the sun rose the next morning. Apparently my grandmother, in the middle of the night, woke up and began sobbing uncontrollably. She was not made aware of his sudden turn in health."
