Imaginary Friend or Ghostly Playmate
Happy Birthday Dead Man
Shortly before a young family was set to move into their new home, the previous tenant passed away. Right after they moved in, their two-year-old began talking about a ghost appearing in several rooms of the house. The parents weren’t all that concerned and thought that because it was around Halloween the little girl’s imagination had got the best of her. One day as they were leaving the house, their daughter told them that the ghost was on their deck. She told them that it was his birthday and she wanted to sing him “Happy Birthday.” Out of sheer curiosity, the parents looked up the obituary of the man that died in the house. Sure enough, it was his birthday.
The Thing Scaring Little Sis
After his family had bought a farm in rural South Africa, a young boy felt like someone was watching him. Weird noises kept him up at night, and he always felt afraid in the house. Things got worse after his grandmother died of cancer. His 4-year-old sister started complaining of stomach pain. She then began sleepwalking and doing strange things in the house. When the 4-year-old was sent away for a weekend, she didn’t seem to have any problems. That was enough to convince the parents to bring in a healer to get rid of the evil presence inhabiting the home. The healer said an evil spirit had been placed on the previous owner of the home and it was still coming in. The healer dug a hole in the backyard and put dirt in a plastic bag. The 4-year-old stopped complaining of stomach pain and the noises that kept them up at night disappeared.
Emily Not So Nice
A little girl, age 6 or 7, told her family about her imaginary friend “Emily”. Emily had long dark hair and wore a black dress. The little girl’s parents started noticing strange behavior in their daughter. She began sitting in the middle of her room, whispering quietly. One day the little girl began to hiss at her brother and scream at her parents to “get out!” Eventually, she calmed down, but not before both parents were in tears. It turns out that Emily was telling the little girl to do terrible things to herself. The family moved out of the home, but the memories of Emily haunt them to this day.
