These events occurred at a church, and the surrounding area, in my hometown. When I was approx. 12 years old, two friends and I decided to stay up all night riding skateboards. On the way back home, we were walking by the church. One of my friends said the church was haunted. He said there was a connection to the church and the street lights that lined the edge of the church property, as well as the lights on the cross attached to the church. My friend proceeded to say something towards the church that I considered inappropriate. Before the words completely left his mouth the street light above our heads went off. Of course, we took off running. I witnessed this a few more times over the next couple of years. Sometimes one of the lights on the cross would cut off. This always occurred when certain things were spoken from the mouth. As time passed, I forgot about these events.
When I was approx. 17, we started playing basketball at the church. The goal/court was in the church parking lot. A core group of us would play basketball 'till the wee hours of the night. One of those nights we were still playing at about 2am. I began to hear music playing. This went on for several minutes, so I finally asked the others where this music was coming from. No one really seemed to care. I decided to jump in my truck, and drive around the nearby houses. I couldn't find the source of the music. When I returned, I could still hear it. By this point, one of my friends had become curious as well. He told me he walked through the play ground near the church while I was gone. He said it was the church choir and one of the people singing was his girlfriend at the time. So, I walked with him to the doors of the church. By this time, the strange music had been playing steady for well over an hour. Sure enough, I heard what sounded like a church choir. I could even feel a faint vibration of several feet tapping on the old wooden floor of the church, while standing on the outside porch. We listened for a few more minutes, and then returned to our games. When we left an hour late, the music was still steadily playing.
As strange as it all was, the vibe I felt coming from inside the church, was not an unhappy one. Of course, we investigated with the church (Was anyone working inside? Was there a tape recorder or CD player in there? The answers were always "no").
There were other things that happened at this church from time to time. The old black and white TV playing a show that seemed to be from another era (there wasn't even a TV in that particular room). The light "shows". The good vibes and the bad vibes (usually when I was being bad). As with everything, when a little time gets between things, we store them away.
I'm glad I was able to go back and do a little remembering.
