Ghosts Are Everywhere... (edited)My sister and I used to share the upstairs bedroom. My family is very Catholic, so we had a bookcase in the corner of the room opposite the door which held a great deal of religious paraphernalia - statues, rosaries, prayer books, pictures of saints, etc. One night, I woke up to the sound of the St. Michael statue falling off the bookcase onto the ground (St. Michael is believed to protect people from evil... he was the angel who fought Lucifer/Satan). Hovering in the corner by the bookcase was a tall and slender white form, partly translucent. I didn't move, couldn't move? for almost an hour, just watching it there. It didn't exude evil or anything, but it sure scared the bejeezus out of me.
Also, I'm very much into theatre, and we always used to do shows at this old Opera House in Oshkosh. The theater has all sorts of ghost stories, including the woman in the red dress, who was killed around the turn of the century when the catacombs below the theater collapsed, and Percy, the theater's old caretaker who shows up now and then just to wreak minor havoc. I've encountered both... as well as other unidentified specters.
EDIT: For those of you interested in stories about the Grand Opera House in Oshkosh, take a look at these links:
It doesn't detail all the ghosts suspected to be present at the Grand, but it does talk about a few.
