Boxing Day Ghost


The experience happened to me about two years ago but I've only just recently thought about sharing it, as when I told a few of my friends they didn't believe me.

My parents split up quite a few years ago so I spend Christmas Day with my mum and then spend Boxing Day with my dad and have a second Christmas Day then.

So on this particular Boxing Day I came back from my dad's house and there was snow everywhere. This is an important detail because we had no windows open because of how cold it was.

I was sat in the living room on my own, as my dad had gone home, my sister was putting away her presents upstairs in her room, and my mum was in the kitchen sorting out the leftover food or something like that.

I was sat on the sofa when suddenly it felt like somebody blew in my ear! It was that strong that all of my hair moved to the side and I actually flinched. I looked to the side straight away but there was nothing there.

Like I said earlier, there were no windows open and there were no drafts as the doors were shut to try and keep as much warmth in as possible. It freaked me out quite a bit as this was one of my first ghostly experiences, so I ended up rushing into the kitchen to my mum and staying in there with her as I was worried about whatever was in the living room.

My mum persuaded me that it was probably just a spirit messing around and they probably weren't intentionally trying to scare me. But what do you guys think? What do you think it could have been? Was it someone just being friendly or was someone trying to scare me?

Hi Hetti I can tell you that this may be a spirit passing through, he or she may be friendly but be careful

Thank you for replying. I think it's likely that it was a friendly spirit, but it still freaked me out! Thank you again 😊

Hi Hetti,

I tend to agree with sds. I had something very similar happen to me, a few years back. Something blew on the back of my head, hard enough to part my hair. There were also no windows or doors open, and I was alone in the lounge. 😕

At the time, I thought it may have been my aunt (passed on a few years before) but still can't say for sure. Nothing like that ever happened to me before, or since.

I don't think it was meant to be scary.

Sorry, I can't be of more help.

Hi Hetti, I think, probably, it might be some stray paranormal encounter and nothing more. Because I think that it was the only experience you had in the house. We call here in our circle, a walk-in and walk-out entity. Like they just come, we do not know for whatever reasons, make their presence known, and just go off.

Thanks for sharing.

Regards and respects to you.
