Christmas Eve Ghost


It was Christmas Eve of 2006, I had just said goodnight to everyone and gone upstairs to go to bed. I was watching "A Christmas Story" for a while and decided to go to bed. My sister stays with us on Christmas Eve, so I had to share my room with her. I let her take my bed and I made a bed for me on the floor (keep in mind that everyone was downstairs). The bed was right in front of my door and it was open so I could see into the hallway. I had fallen asleep (not for very long because my sister still wasn't in bed yet). I looked out the door and saw a girl standing there with her head tilted to one side and kind of swinging back and forth. I was shocked and very frightened, I turned over and, like a little kid, put the covers over my head. There is an attic above where she was standing. We never use the attic and I have never been up there.

The next morning I told my family but they said it was probably just me hallucinating. But I know what I saw. She wasn't transparent or anything like that. It scared me and I still hate to walk by that place at night, when all the lights are off. It just freaks me out!

That happened to me when I was 5 or 6, but I wasn't in my house & it wasn't Christmas Eve. I woke up one day err night & saw a girl standing by the door. The door was closed before I slept, and I guess the girl/ghost opened it. She stared at me for a while and closed the door. I couldn't move when she was there. I don't even know how long she was there... I don't even know if I was breathing... 😕 Anyways, after that I turned on the television (I used to think ghosts dissapeared, died, ect. In the light) and went back to sleep. My cousin told me the next day that she saw a ghost too. I described to her what the ghost looked like, about 4/5 feet tall, long hair, and wearing a dress. It scared me when she said she saw the ghost in the light, but blood all over the ghost. Now, I'm soo scared of ghosts, even though that happened a long time ago and it was in a different country. Lol 😨

Hmmm... There might be something to the fact that you've never been in the attic before. Do you know the history of the house? She might be trying to tell you something.

As it was Christmas time, a time for children, she may have been attracted by the festivities and manifested from the excited energy.

have you seen her since?

God Bless!

Have you looked in the attic since. Perhaps this entity was trying to tell you something. If I were you I would try to get in the attic just to see what is there. Hope you had a good christams.

I'd be freaked out too!!!i doubt you were hallucinating, it'd be hard to imagine something that vividly and randomly...
