What is a Ghost?
Where ever you go, there is one thing you will always come across. That thing is ghosts. Every religion, every region has them, but, you may ask, is a ghost? You’ve heard of them before, but what is the official definition? A ghost is the spirit of a dead person, especially one believed to appear in bodily likeness or to haunt formers habitats. Haunting is when a ghost appears many times by one or more people. Ghosts will usually haunt the places that they lived. There are many types of ghosts in the world. Here are just a few.
Poltergeist- a ghost the announces its presence with rapping and the creation of disorder
Phantom-something apparently seen, heard, or sensed, but having no physical reality
Apparition-a ghostly figure
Specter-a haunting or disturbing image or prospect
Ghoul-an evil ghost
Banshee-a spirit of a woman who appears, wailing, to signal someone in the household is going to die
A poltergeist is one of the most famous kinds of ghosts. Those are “the ones who go bump in the night”. They are different from other ghosts, since they are not really seen. The objects they move are the only things that are seen. They are also heard by tapping on doors, rapping on walls, etc. They are not connected to places, but rather people. Sometimes they produce odd effects. They are definitely not your ordinary, everyday ghost.
