In 2006, my cousins and my aunt, Penny, were living at my grandmother's house temporarily. Because the house is quite old and small, there were not enough bedrooms to accommodate the children, and they slept in the family room.
Anyway, in March of 2006, I was still in high school. I had to get up quite early to get ready for school, as three people had to shower and use the only bathroom each morning. I normally started getting ready at 4:30, because the bus came at 6:15. The following events happened for close to three weeks:
I was sitting at the dining room table, eating breakfast after my shower. At precisely 5:15, the TV in the family room turned on. So the sound wouldn't wake up my cousins (the TV was very loud), I went to go turn it off. Here's where it starts to get freaky:
The TV in the family room is not connected to any sort of antenna. It no longer worked. Also, I saw the figure of a very tall man who appeared to be moving inside the "no signal" snow. However, I wrote it off as lack of sleep.
I checked on all three of my cousins to make sure they were asleep, and not the ones who had turned on the TV. All of my cousins were sound asleep, and there were no signs that they were the ones who got up and turned on the TV so early in the morning.
The events I have described occurred every morning for close to three weeks. I would have dismissed the events that I witnessed if they had not occurred with such frightening regularity, including the fact that the TV always came on at 5:15 AM-not a minute before, not a minute after. The TV did not do such a thing again.
I was wondering if anyone could offer suggestions for the ghostly image inside the television. I have the following theories:
1) Lack of sleep (I was getting up early on a regular basis)
2) Power surge through the outlet, which turned the TV on.
I would appreciate any suggestions you can offer.
