Would You Be Willing to Live in a Haunted House?

I mean, REALLY live in a haunted house. Not like, stay the night, or swing in for a quick 20 minute tour. I’m talking about committing yourself to living full-time, for the foreseeable future, in a home that perhaps the local refer to as that house.

If you see no issues with this, then apparently you’re not alone. 1 in 3 people say they’d be OK with living in a haunted house, although to what degree of haunting remains unknown.

Personally, I’ve spent a few nights at haunted places, although I’m not entirely sure if I’d want to take on a full-time relationship with a haunted house.

One time, while staying at a hotel in San Francisco, I quickly discovered that my entire floor was haunted. It didn’t bother me all that much, until I went on TripAdvisor and read that the room next door to mine was notorious for guests filing complaints about a crying child. I draw the line at haunted children.

But I’ve also taken tours of historic landmarks, only to find out later that they’re incredibly haunted. One time while at Fort McHenry in Baltimore, I felt a chill up my spine while checking out the prisoner area of the fort. It later turns out that the prison area is one of the more haunted parts of the fort. That, surprisingly, didn’t me all that much.

Yet if you told me there was a haunted kid somewhere on the grounds, I’d probably pass on a visit.
