Halloween is just around the corner, what would be more fun than checking out a real haunted house or building near you in Haunted Ontario spots.
Have you ever seen a ghost or visited a place that is known to have ghosts or spirits? While I haven’t been to any spooky places, I have heard ghosts, whispering in the night, at a house that I was told had spirits.
While I was a bit skeptical about sleeping in a house that possibly has some sort of spirit floating around, never knowing when they may appear. I couldn’t let that bother me, I stayed, I survived, “I ain’t afraid of no ghost!” I had to sleep after all, I couldn’t be spooked by ghosts.
The first time I heard the whispers, I wasn’t sure if I was hearing right. I had just woken up through the night and didn’t have a clear head. Awake, listening, trying to tell if it was real or in my head. I lay there listening, for what seemed like hours, finally, I decided, there was no one outside, I am in the country, the voices are coming from outside the bedroom door. There was no movement, I just lay there in bed until the spirits left.

Many Haunting’s around Canada have been shown on the TV Show Creepy Canada from 2002-2006. This reminds me of another freaky night in another house. One time I was watching a Haunting in Georgia, when all of a sudden the oven timer went off and I just about hit the roof.There I hadn’t been any out of the ordinary stories about that house, so ya, it was a bit freaky!
