Do you believe in ghosts? Maybe you have seen one, and maybe you think it’s a load of old rubbish. There will always be believers and sceptics, so if you want to make an informed decision before you decide, read the following 10 ghost facts that are a little spooky.

1. Einstein


Many scientists will most likely laugh in your face if you tell them ghosts are real. Not Albert Einstein, though, as he may have hypothesized a scientific basis for the existence of ghosts. As energy can neither be created nor destroyed, and can only change form, what happens to our energy when we die? It could manifest itself into a ghost.

2. Night Time

You’re more likely to see a ghost at night due to reduced electronic disturbance from appliances and devices, which are thought to drown out or compete with ghostly spirits.

Spirits can exist in a variety of forms, including orbs, streaks of light, mists, dark shadows and unusual blurs. Full-body apparitions may also appear but are more unlikely.

4. Ancient Egypt


The Ancient Egyptians believed that ghosts were a form of life after death, and that is was simply a transition from one existence to another.

5. Sense of Smell


If you have a ghost in your house, there’s a good chance your abode offers a beautiful aroma or absolutely stinks. That’s because ghosts apparently have a strong sense of smell and can become attached to places with distinctive smells.

6. The Name of the Dead
