I would like to share this one since this has been one of my favorite ones.
My father's cousin was an elementary school teacher and this story is about their house built 10 years ago. Her husband was a seaman so they earned enough to make this enormous house.
It has been a local tradition that in the event a local decides to build a house, the elderly in the place would check if the area where the house is going to be built is free of any bad elements or spirits. I personally don't know how they would do that because I thought it's there thing. At that time I don't usually ask "silly questions" BUT here's the thing, the old man told my "Auntie" that the house should be built 50 meters from the original plan, meaning it should be closer to the road. But my Auntie was a non-believer, she said they wanted to stick to the plan and push through with the building.
So there it was finished, after 10 months of construction. They moved into the house. Since it's new and we were Catholics, they had the house blessed. I was with them during the whole blessing thing, and weirdly the priest told my Auntie;"You have a pretty creepy location right here, my hair is standing up". My Auntie did not make any comment about that.
I study at the same school she was teaching and my teacher at that time was a neighbor and a friend of hers. One morning (years ago), my teacher (my Auntie's friend) told me that something odd happened the other night. She saw a group of people holding candles walking on the road as if in a procession, she was shocked because our place is just a small one and whatever occasion there is, everyone knows about it. But what bothered her is; the procession turned on my Auntie's lawn and disappeared. And she was not alone to witness that. An elderly couple saw that too.
The next thing I've heard is that in one occasion, the neighbors saw THIS: it seemed that a storm was hitting but ONLY my Auntie's house. Trees were bending like crazy. The funny thing is my Auntie's family never noticed it.
Most if not all of the events that the neighbors encountered were not felt, noticed or whatever by my Auntie's family. One lunch time, she was on her way back to school (she always come home for lunch since school is just on walking distance). She was walking on the road (her house was along the road and this is a downhill national road in our country, pretty small, just a one-way road). Down the road was a store. When she came by the store, the store owner asks this (according to her) bizarre question.
The store owner said: "Ma'am where was that guy with you?"
My Auntie said:"Sorry, I was alone walking down the road."
Store owner:"But I saw a man right behind you."
My Auntie:"I'm sure I was alone. What does he look like?"
Store owner:"I'm not sure, I know he's not from here, I thought he was your husband's cousin or something. That's why I'm asking you where he went."
I'm intrigued with her house and the area and the road, I'm even planning a visit there in the near future.
Hey guys I want to hear your thoughts on this. The old people say that that place are the spirits "hallway", they pass there. Is there a need to worry?
