Guest blog by Trendsetter Connor who is 16. Trendsetters is a project run by Scope for young disabled people. As it’s Halloween this week, he’s written a blog to tell us why he wants to be a ghost hunter.
I want to be a ghost hunter because I am interested in the paranormal. When I was three years old, I was walking into the bathroom and looked back and there was a figure stood in my bathroom. Then I looked back again and it was gone.
I definitely believe in ghosts because every house I’ve lived in, I’ve had strange experiences.
I’m really interested in the history of ghost hunting, scientists started trying to record ghosts as far back as 1933.
Halloween is on the 31 October and is the perfect time to do some ghost hunting. You could use things like a torch or a camera to try and see a ghost.
This Halloween why don’t you try and get into the spirit of things? How about these fun ways to get involved:
- Get dressed up. You could try a spooky costume or a costume you think is fun.
- You and your friends could try telling each other some scary stories with a small prize for the scariest.
- Ask an adult to help you make some super-scarey food. Put some gummy worms in jelly for some ghostly ectoplasm (that’s the stuff ghosts leave behind).
Let me know what you are doing for Halloween in the comments box.
