True Ghost Story: Who Threw The Tomatoes?

LocationSt.Albert, Alberta, Canada

The following report was sent into our website:

“Well, one afternoon my friend was over we were just reading about some ghost stories and then she had to go to the washroom. She asked me to go along because she thinks my house is haunted (my grandpa and auntie died in this house). And well so I go up stairs with her and I wait in the kitchen while she goes to the washroom.

Out of nowhere these tomatoes just fly off the middle of the washing machine. I got freaked and just stood there staring at the tomatoes. And ever since that day, I have seen shadows and my room has been getting cold all of a sudden then going back to warm. Like right now it feels like someone is looking over my shoulder while I type this.”

True Ghost Story: Cottage Seance

Location: Kawartha, Ontario, Canada

The following report was sent into our website by Beth:

“Many years ago, a group of about 6 of us stayed overnight at a friend’s cottage. It was located near a lake in the Kawartha’s just outside the Peterborough area. The cottage was fairly secluded with many trees surrounding it. It was also the dead of winter and we didn’t arrive there until 10:00 p.m. After settling in and starting a fire in the fireplace, it was decided by my boyfriend that we were going to try and summon a spirit by reciting from a book he had brought. I decided not to join in on this as I felt it was dangerous, and warned everyone that it was foolish to try to evoke a spirit when you have no idea what you’re doing or what you could possibly “invite”. No one was taking it very seriously so despite my objections, they decided it would be “fun” to try.

Everyone sat around the kitchen table, lit a few candles for effect, closed their eyes and joined hands. I sat away from them in a corner of the kitchen where I could see everyone without actually participating. Steve began reciting various passages from the book. This went on for about 15 minutes with the occasional laughter and teasing – but everyone settled down eventually and within a short time, one of the girls began to breathe quite deeply. I watched her closely. Her head was hung down and I could see her shoulders rising and falling with the deep breathing. Then, very slowly she began to lift her head so I could see her face more clearly. Her eyes were still closed and she made no noise, but tears were streaming down her cheeks. No one other than myself realized what was going on. I was getting extremely nervous at this point. Then she opened her mouth wide as if to scream. At that point I jumped up and told everyone they had to stop this NOW!! The girl had been holding hands with her boyfriend (who was quite large and very strong). She shook him off like he was a small child and jumped up looking very frightened and disoriented. When asked, she said she couldn’t really remember what happened during the last few minutes of the “seance”.

This rattled everyone and we spent the rest of the evening speculating what might have happened had we let this continue. Needless to say, no one got any sleep that night. I’ve never been involved in anything like this since – and I won’t even touch a Ouija board! I slept with the lights on for a month afterward!”

True Ghost Story: The Lamp Was On Without Being Plugged In

Location: Oshawa, Ontario, Canada

The following report was sent into our website:

“Well, in the house I am living in now we have had a few weird things happen. First of all, my husband was up in the bedroom by himself and a light by the bed stayed on for 10 minutes without being plugged in. Second of all, I had turned a light off in the bathroom, went halfway downstairs and looked and it was back on.

Also, my son has a toy remote control car which kept going by itself all the time with no one around and no one touching the controls, it even went backwards all the way across the room once and it doesn’t even have a backwards control on the car.

Also, on the year anniversary of my grandmothers death, my husband and I were talking about her, this happened to be around midnight, not sure about the significance of this at all, but all the sudden my husband started talking about all these things to do with my grandmother that were from when I was a child that he never knew. He even described a house she used to live in that he had never been to!

He said he felt she was sending him messages, this was very weird as there was no way he would have known or could have found out these things he was telling me. They were things I had totally forgotten from my childhood.

Then I felt very strongly a presence in the room. It made everything feel very heavy and I felt as if she was right there. Could really feel it through my body, it is the weirdest thing I have ever experienced. Then I felt the presence physically lift from me and go away. I knew she was gone, but she had wanted to communicate with me one more time before she was gone for good. My husband had also told me that she was telling him things about what happened not too long before she died. And before she died she couldn’t really talk, or seemed to be in a vegetative state for years.

There have been other things that have happened here as well. As in regards to my stepfather dying; he was very close to my son, was like a grandfather to him. On the night he died, my son said to me, “Chris says, hi gator gator, I’m alright”!

My son was 3 yrs old when this happened. Alligator was what my stepfather called him all the time. Then he said, “Chris says, Tracey (that’s me) are you listening to me?” It was the strangest thing. This was when my husband had gone over to be with his mother and wait for the coroner after my stepfathers’ body had been discovered hours after he had a heart attack.

Since then my son has told me many other things that my stepfather says to him. I do believe he can communicate with him. I know some people may not believe in these things but I believe very strongly in the experiences I have had.”

True Ghost Story: The Ghost Told Us A Story

Location: Toronto, Ontario, Canada

The following report was sent into our website:

“I live in a funky three-floor house in Toronto beaches area. This house has ghosts we know for certain there are two but we feel there could be a third as well. I have a dog and three cats, the pets all sense the ghosts as we all watch them when they sense them on the stairs or when Diablo the cat talks to them which she seems to do often by herself … but the reason that I am writing this is due to a weird thing that happened.

We have four computers here and though three are on the main floor one is on the third floor, the third floor is away from the noise as the stairway to the floor is in the corner of the second floor so it is very quiet up there except when the ghosts are about.

Once in that room I kept closing the door as one of the cats was trying to get out through the window there as the screen was easy to knock out, this was in the spring as with the a/c on they can not access the window; but I had the cats on the main floor with me and I kept the door closed and I heard a bang so I went upstairs to see what was up and the door was open, so I closed it and made the trek downstairs.

This happened twice and I was annoyed as it is a fair hike up there lol .. but then I heard another bang and yelled ok that is it I am shutting this well! When I got upstairs I noticed that a telephone book was put in front of the door to block it open… which was wild as firstly I did not even know we had a phone book and I was the only person home so I know that I had not done this… so I then told the ghost ok if you want it open it will remain so and I just made certain the window was closed so the cats could not get out.

Another night my roomie, who has his computer on the third floor, was playing with a voice recognition program. He was not having any luck so he came down to chill with us and use the computer on the main floor. Later that night a few hours as we watched a movie or two he went to turn his computer off and had noticed that the program was left running and had picked up text.

It was weird and I have it somewhere but it sounded like a story. The ghost was talking about the window and seeing someone out there. We tried to talk in the room to see if it would pick up our voices and it would not. We left it on overnight to see if anything more could be picked up but the program froze so it did not but it was wild and I know it had to have been the ghost.

I live with my niece she is 20 and she has always seen ghosts, they freak her out so she doesn’t talk to them but she can see them, I can sense them but not actually see them.

One night I described what I felt the ghost looked like and she confirmed that was one of them, the other that lives here comes through as a dark shadow outline type the first though is a man who lived here.”

True Ghost Story: Haunted Bungalow

Location: Canada

The following report was sent into our website:

“There was an elderly couple who used to live here before my parents bought the house. My father and step-mom bought the house because the widow died. As a result of his mother’s death, her son put the house on the market. Included in the sale, was a portrait of the woman’s husband which she kept hung over the bed in the master bedroom.

Neighbours are always a little unsure of whether or not to mention the history of the house to potential buyers. The former resident’s husband actually died in the house. He was walking down the basement stairs when he had a heart attack and died. He had the heart attack on the upper landing between the side door and the staircase leading to the basement.

He is a fairly friendly sort of spirit. He tends to help by turning off lights and checking up on us while we sleep. Unfortunately for my brother’s girlfriend, waking up to seeing someone staring at you hasn’t always been a good surprise! She was a little freaked after that episode.

I have come to think of most of the comings and goings at Dad’s place to be relatively normal. We have creaky stairs that you can hear people walking on late at night, a Cd player that will come on while we are watching tv in the living room, and a stove that will turn itself down so that you don’t burn dinner when you are home alone.

The odd thing is, this isn’t your typical haunted house. It was built in the mid to late 60’s and is a 3 bedroom bungalow in a fairly modern development.

Back to the latest developments:
My brother was house sitting home alone taking a nap when the dryer started a dry cycle by itself. No clothes in the dryer, no one home. He woke up in a hurry! Another time that week, his stereo turned itself off in front of him. I haven’t spoken to his girlfriend yet, so I don’t know the whole story behind the experiences yet (his girlfriend notices more than he does).

There’s no teenage energy around to have caused some poltergeist activity and no one’s been harmed due to anything that’s happened here. Most of the time, there are our familiars (friends and relatives that have passed as well as former pets) who drop by and check up on us.”

True Ghost Story: Haunted Hospice

Location: Canada

The following report was sent into our website:

“First of all for those who don’t know what a hospice home is a home environment for anyone who is terminally ill. I have seen silhouette’s of ghost in this house and have heard someone say “hello” a few times. I have checked it out who was saying hello thinking maybe it was one of our resident’s calling for me for either med’s or maybe needs something, when I did check it out all of the resident’s were sleeping.

Another situation that happen not to long ago was with a elderly female who had a heart condition, I became close to her while she was residing at the home, she died during the night before I started my day shift, I was numb to hear the bad news. We (staff) had moved her belongings to a room which at that time was vacant.

We have a call bell system in the house which looks like a watch when resident’s need our attention they press the button. While I was preparing lunch for the 3 other resident’s the call bell system was going off in the room which had all of the belongings to the elderly lady, I would go down thinking maybe something was resting on this call bell, but when I arrived in the room couldn’t seen any signs of the call bell so I shut off the system.

A staff member who relieves me came on, I told her what was happening during the day shift, she feels that this elderly lady was contacting me by using the call bell system. I found out that the call bell was placed inside the office which is locked unless there is a office staff in there. I started to get goose bumps and the back of my hair was standing.

I did go into this room which had her belongings in it and said good bye to her ever since then the call bell stopped ringing for me. Pretty weird eh?”
