Spooked out by Halloween tales? Here are are few to leave you with thoughts of friendly ghosts.
Here are a few spooky, but not terrifying, stories told by users.
When I was running youth exchange programs, one of my host families had twin daughters, about 5-years-old at the time. One of the girls could see people’s auras and also ‘fairies’ that lived in the plants in and around the house. Mom totally believed, but dad didn’t. One morning when dad was alone, he said to the plant in the kitchen: ‘Hey, if you’re real, at dinner tonight, tell my daughter to tell me the word “green.”’ That night at dinner, his daughter was looking on the plant as usual, then came over to her dad and said: ‘Daddy the fairy wanted me to tell you “green.”’ He became an instant believer.
My wife was getting my 2-year-old son up one morning. He was standing in his crib. As she said good morning and walked over to him he picked up her shirt a little and crooked his head to the side.
She asked him what he was doing and he said, ‘looking for my baby sister in your tummy.’
She laughed it off as a weird kid imagination thing. We found out later that at the time she was two weeks pregnant and it was, in fact, a girl.
We had never really had the talk about where babies come from nor did we talk about having another child at all around him. So spooky.
