Real Ghost Stories
You Read That Right
When I first started TwoCansOnAString.com true ghost stories were a regular feature on my blog.
Over the years, TwoCansOnAString.com has gone through some changes . . . then reverted back to the eclectic clutter of an attic full of treasures. This was fine, but I’ve always felt something was missing . . .
Passion . . . my passion for creating a place where family and friends gather to share their stories . . . You know as well as I do that telling true ghost stories are part of any gathering . . .
When I did the post about S’Mores, I thought of camping and campfires . . . sitting around the fire pit in my own backyard . . . it dawned on me how much I miss sharing real ghost stories here.
So . . . I thought it best to throw caution to the wind and return to my passion of writing ghost stores . . . Real ghost stories I hear from others who have had true paranormal experiences that have scared them, fascinated them and creeped them out.
Well . . . let’s see how this works out!!
Please join me on this journey . . . and create your own cozy place where your friends and family can gather in your own backyard to share your personal ghostly encounters or those you’ve read here and want to share.

The imagination goes a bit wild when in the dead of night there is thumping on the wall. There have been several stories where people have been buried in the wall of a basement or in a wall of the house, perhaps sealing a closet. It's not something I like to think...read more

I don't like to admit it, but I believe this is sometimes true. Rachel wasn't feeling well one evening and got up to make some toast after everyone else went to bed and were sleeping soundly. She was in the kitchen waiting for the toast to pop up out of the toaster....read more
I was delivering flowers to grave sites one afternoon when I saw a ghostly apparition of three ladies dressed up in Victorian style clothing having tea. They nodded at me as I passed by. It was quite remarkable to see a formal tea party. I didn't want to intrude and I...read more
I believe my local coffee shop is haunted. It seems that every time my friend Kelly comes to the coffee shop, before she gets to our table a chair is pulled out. It's almost as though one of us kicks the chair out in greeting for her to sit down. The first few times...read more
I'm always hearing about unexplainable paranormal experiences people have had. I hear about them while I'm at my local coffee shop. Also while I'm setting flowers out at the local cemetery. Many people go there to visit with their past loved ones -- and sometimes they...read more

Sonny was haunted by a little girl. It seems my local coffee shop is the place for me to learn about the paranormal experiences of others. I guess I've gotten a reputation in my little corner of the city that I'll listen to the strange and unusual stories of others...read more
I was at a used bookstore one afternoon and I found this old diary. I was excited about it, but I was also nervous about buying something as private as a diary, but I bought it and kept it in my car for a few weeks before smudging it and bringing it into the house....read more
It was one of the old mansions in town that got everyone exciting about this particular estate sale. I was there bright and early so I wouldn't miss anything. The article said that everything had to go and the attic was filled to the rafters with cast offs from...read more
Many of you may find cemeteries to be creepy . . . but they don't have to be. Some people have some very interesting ideas about ghost hunting and being right in the middle of the action, but would you set up camp next to a cemetery? I have a respect for cemeteries...read more
There is a common belief that 12 midnight is the bewitching hour when ghosts, spirits, poltergeists, what have you will appear. For ghost hunters, many have day jobs and night is the best time for them. I believe it is spookier at night and having some nice scary...read more
The easy answer is the unexpected. I truly wish there was a camera set up awhile back when my ghost hunting friends and I came running out of an abandoned house like scared children. You'll just have to imagine a group of senior citizens running for their lives down a...read more
