This isn't really a story, but several scary things that have happened over the years in my house. The house is about 40-45 years old and we do have Holy Water and blessed Crucifixes (we are Catholic) in some of the rooms if that helps at all.
I think the first thing that happened was the scariest. In 1999, my mom and sister both saw a black figure run from our bathroom to my room. My sister said she saw it a few more times and eventually it stopped. I know my mom would not make that up, as she isn't much of a believer in ghosts.
The second thing happened about 2 or 3 years ago. I was home alone (at night) watching TV when suddenly, the lights all went out. I was terrified because that had never happened before. I prayed very hard to God because I am religious and I was afraid something might try to hurt me. It stayed off for about 10-15 seconds and then they all came back on. I know some people might be skeptical but there were no storms, nobody was working on the power lines, I didn't have lots of things turned on at once (to create a breaker fail) and as far as I know I was the only one that this occurred to in my neighborhood.
Another weird thing happened about 1 or 2 years ago. I used to sleep with my cat locked in my room at night. One night, I remember doing the normal routine, I grabbed my cat, put him on the bed in my room, closed the door, and went to sleep. When I got up the next morning my door was still closed but I didn't see my cat. I walked out into the hallway and my mom asked me if I had locked him out. I told her no, that I had no idea how that happened. It turns out that when she got up, he was standing outside my door. We both thought that was really strange.
Those were probably the weirdest things that have happened. My sister (who is not living here anymore) says that when she spends the night here alone sometimes, she hears strange noises and gets a creepy feeling. And my cat has acted like he sees something that I can't see several times.
I don't know if my house is really "haunted" but strange things do happen from time to time. What do you guys think?
