We recently moved into a new house in Canterbury, England. The house is really rather beautiful, and I have no complaints at all. But some strange things have been happening since we moved in.

A few nights ago, I was lying in bed and as I’m lying there I started to hear footsteps running up the stairs. Now we have two children, so I just thought it was one of them, but the sound kept on and on and on. It was like there was a child running up and down the stairs. I got up, left the room and it stopped. I went back to bed and it started again. This happened several times before I went downstairs… completely awake.

A few days later I was in the kitchen when I heard someone walking behind me. I turned around and nobody was there. These footsteps happen quite often. I’ve decided that the house is haunted by the spirit of a playful child. We have had objects move from room to room and doors opening and closing.

I have no idea what I can do to help this spirit, but I wanted to share this story to prove that sometimes these incidents can be completely harmless. I don’t think ghosts are all terrifying and miserable. I do believe sometimes they can be just looking for fun.

Ann Burnham,
