In the Philippines, we have a day to remember our dead relative called All Souls Day (Nov 2), although it is common for people to go to the cemetery on Nov 1. Aside from putting candles there, they also put lighted candles at home, they say this is to make sure the souls won't visit them. As the day approaches, many TV shows has horror or suspense themes. Even comic ones has ghostly or creepy stories, of course for laughs. There are even features on many beliefs, rituals that folks from provinces do about ghosts, supernatural beings, elements, etc. What give me the creeps are the ghosts stories although I haven't seen one they still are hair raisers. Do you ghost stories, or have you seen one?

I love ghost stories. I pretty much live one, but won't discuss it here. Some of just like to be scared, I guess.

Yeah right! but have you really seen one? what does it look like. I have been wondering if they all look the same to different persons who said they have seen a ghost.

Ghosts are frightening really although nobody has ever proved its existence primarily because they are not solid and they disappear at once and those who claim to have seen are not even sure if they really saw it. We are afraid and yet they cannot do any physical harm to us and we really don't know if ghosts exist or not. It's not easy not to be afraid even if it's only in our minds.
