A New Winner Every Month!
Okay, my ghost was possibly a unique type of spirit. We dubbed him the Electrical Ghost. But for all the silliness that name implies, this ghost was very real and very spooky.
We'd moved into a new home in Derry, New Hampshire. The house was at the end of a country street, on a Cul de Sac. A perfect place to raise our two girls, who were very young at that point. My husband had just taken a new job and he traveled a lot. We weren't close to family at that stage in our lives so it was pretty much just me and my two babies.
I didn't really mind being alone. The girls kept me busy and we had lots of fun together. But when the weirdness started happening, it was definitely less fun!
First of all, we had a cat named Cheerio. Cheerio didn't like the new house. At. All. In fact, she hid almost all the time. It wasn't until we moved a few years later that I realized how abnormal her behavior had been. I always figured she was just hiding from the kids. And who could blame her! LOL
If I'd been paying attention at that point I might have seen the other stuff coming. But I was a young, exhausted mother and didn't have a clue.
Until the smoke alarms started going off at Midnight. Several nights in a row. Of course my husband was gone when this happened.
Then the doorbell started to ring and there was nobody there. One time my husband (yeah, he was there for this one) was on the phone with the contractor trying to explain the problems when the doorbell started going off. After a few minutes the contractor asked my husband if he was going to get the door. Hubby waited a beat and then told the man that was one of the reasons we were calling. There was nobody there.
Then half the plugs and lights in the kitchen went out. They were all on the same switch…impossible… And of course the garage door opener would randomly decide not to work.
We finally asked the contractor if he'd built the house on a burial ground or something. Maybe an electrician was murdered and buried there before the house was built. ROFL!
We never found out what was causing all the weirdness, but when we moved again a couple of years later, Cheerio came out of hiding. She was a perfectly normal cat from that point on.
They always say animals are sensitive to this type of thing. I guess that old wives tale is true!
Have you ever been haunted? Have you ever had something happen to you that you couldn't explain? Comment below to tell me about it. Or if there's nothing, tell me that too! I'll randomly pick one winner every month who'll get his/her choice of a book from my list.
