Open House: Have You Lived in a Haunted House?

Earlier this week, I asked if you believe in haunted houses. Over 60 percent of you said you absolutely believe in haunted houses, and I have to say that I'm with you in that opinion.

When I was in college my friends and I moved into an old Victorian in a nearby town. It was a beautiful three-story home, and we enjoyed decorating it to our (college-budget-limited) hearts' content. However, spooky things definitely occurred. The creepiest was when we all left the house one Winter morning and locked the door tight. We returned that evening to find the door standing wide open and the faucet in the sink turned on — with the water in the sink and on counters, floors, and coming out of the faucet frozen solid. While the 20 below zero weather that infiltrated the house explains the frozen water (and pipes, ouch), how the water was turned on, and the door unlocked, is another story entirely. Was it a neighborhood prank by teenage kids? Or something more spectral?

How about you? Have you ever lived in a haunted house? If so, what was your experience like?

I put the story of my ghosts into a book. Can I post this information here?

Yes, my house was haunted, by many spirits. Two trapped and one that comes and go.

When I was in high school my grandma passed away and left us her house. She used to tell me that things used to get misplaced alot. So we moved in and sure enough I would always find my stuff misplaced when I got back from school. We had wood floors and I would know who would be walking in the middle of the night. Then one night I heard someone's footsteps that didn't sound like my parents or sis, so I quickly opened my door and no one was there. Another time my parents were having a party, I went to my room to get something and I closed the door behind me. I turned around to grab the doorknob because I forgot something else then the whole doorknob shook back and forth left and right. At night I could also hear another set of footsteps that sounded like tiny feet. There were no children in the house by the way. The one thing that scared me the most was when one of my porcelain dolls moved its head. I threw away that doll immediately.
