I have heard about most of these stories. The Mama Lou story really caught my attention. I know some of these may be fake, but I know ghosts are real. I know I may be just a twelve-year-old wanting to hear or read ghost stories on All Hallows' Eve, but sometimes I really like these stories. I like being freaked out or spooked. It gets my blood flowing. It makes me think, "Hey, maybe I should try this!"
