Halloween just wouldn’t be the same without a scary story to leave you hiding under the covers too freaked out to sleep. But for some mums they aren't just stories, with spooky things happening way too close to home.
If you are after a bit of a scare before the trick-or-treating starts, read on – if you dare...
For most of us, the bus is simply a means of getting from A to B, but for one poor unfortunate it was a journey that she would never forget. “I was on the bus with my lil bro he was about 2. As the bus went past a church he looked at the church and said 666 then turned back to face me that freaked me out. [sic]”
We would be slightly freaked out as well although the next story in particular terrified us, if we’re being honest. ”My 3yr old was playing up one night, kept getting out of bed so I sat outside her door for a while and heard her talking to someone telling them to go away, that they couldn't scare her,” one mum wrote. “It made my blood go cold but she went quiet and went to sleep so I left. I checked on her before I went to bed and when I tried to get in there was something against the door, my 3yo was asleep against the door. She has never done this before. I managed to get in and lift her into bed but I have to say it scared the bejesus out of me!”
It seems things definitely go bump in the night as another told us that her son said there was a little girl hiding behind his bedroom door. But that’s not the scariest part. She added: “I was lying in bed and thought I'd seen my little girl go in my boys bedroom and went in to get her and she wasn't there checked her room and she was fast asleep that put chills down my spine [sic]”
Fortunately for one mum, it was all just one big joke. She wrote: “My 6 year old daughter [had] seen a trailer for the grudge on TV and has been obsessed with it so as I was getting her bath ready....she was getting stripped in her room.. Dis was about 8pm an was almost dark out...as I walked into her room to get her for her bath she had the lights off half dressed with her hair combed down over her face an standing on top of the bunk bed clinging to the corner of the wall as if possessed [sic]”
Not surprisingly, the poor mother was terrified. ”I screamed the house down thinking she was possessed or either a ghost....until she burst out laughing.....” she said. “I no it doesn't sound scary but If you seen the photo I took of her u wud jump,outa ur skin [sic]”
This Halloween night we'll definitely be checking under our bed before we go to sleep...
