Personally, I believe ghosts exist. However, I don't think they exist in a "scare you in the middle of the night" kind of way. I just think that souls do not die. Energy exists forever. Ghosts, spirits, angels, whatever you call it, I really do believe our loved ones and friends don't leave when they pass.

But for some people, they don't have such nice ghost encounters. Some people experience some pretty crazy stuff. The other day was "National Supernatural Day". So we asked on Facebook and Instagram about your ghost stories.
