Probably but that was long enough ago that I don't remember. I maybe just a scardey cat. Do you think that heirloom I mentioned above has anything to do with it?

For the record, I believe you are being honest here. Maybe this was already addressed and I missed it, but do you see something on the floor next to the narrow window on the left side of the front door? It almost looks like a small animal, like a cat? To me, it looks like he is looking down at that.

It is a statue of a sheltie
which is the dog you see going after the man. We love our shelties

My mother saw her dead step-father - and he was as solid as could be - for the couple of seconds that she saw him. She said he was standing in the same room as all our relatives at my grandmother's birthday party. He was as solid as the rest of them! I trust my mom - she is not one to make up things, especially not about something like that. She was very emotional right afterward - crying and shaking - it was NOT a joke.

Very interesting. My brother in law saw his dead grandfather one night, and the grandfather actually tried to talk to him. I'm sorry butnid have a heart attack! Maybe that's why it doesn't happen to me.
I wouldn't be scared if it was an immediate relative, but other than that, I'd be done.

Are people actually speculating on the paranormal activity of a blurry photograph of some random guy? Oh dear.

I'd be more curious of the Gremlin looking character just above the dog. Anyone see it.??

Thank you. You were way too kind
. My grandfather shot himself, as much as I hate saying that in respect to him. The fact that two Christmas's in a row leads me to believe that he either is a family member, or the spirit has a connection with Christmas. That being said, there are plenty of moments outside of Christmas where things happen, so I don't know what up with that. Does this seem like a logical assumption?


Seems like a very logical assumption ... also speaking as someone who has experienced the paranormal all of my life and also runs a private paranormal investigation group I'd just like to tell you not to be creeped out by the activity in your home ... I think someone mentioned in the early pages that if the cause of the activity meant any harm it would have done something long ago.

As you are the only people to have lived in the property this definately feels like a relative or guardian spirit ... and the christmas activity may or may not be from the same source but that has the hallmark of an anniversary spirit (a spirit that shows up on a specific occasion).

I read the OP and the first page. Needless to say I was unimpressed, it's just heresy supported by a single picture. A blurry one at that. Of some guy just standing there.

I'm all for paranormal investigation, but c'mon. I'm not saying there isn't a paranormal presence/entity at play, because I can't. But why would you expect anyone to believe this is a legitimate claim?

Solid ghosts are more common than people imagine ... but say ghost and most people think of some whispy apparition.

It's hard to say for sure but it's a possibility. I have a good friend who swears an old trunk in her house is haunted and she sees the ghost attached to it frequently. She isn't someone who would make up such things. Neither is her husband who wouldn't lie about it either, so I know such things happen. I used to be a paranormal investigator so I definitely believe in the paranormal. I've had far too many experiences.

Now this is just pure speculation, but I would think with it being a coat of arms, if it were someone attached to it, I would suspect it would have been someone who died within the past century or so because before that, those people didn't wear short sleeves ever. If it's a ghost, he looks fairly modern. Do you know how long the coat of arms has been in the family or where it came from before... correct me if I'm wrong, didn't you say it was your grandfather's? Do you know who had it before he did?

You know what, I've had this in the back of my mind throughout the whole thread, but I didn't want to appear to be hijacking the thread by coming out with my own story, but since there are definitely similarities, I'll go ahead and share. I'm not fortunate enough to have a photo of my "ghost." I just saw it one day, in my bedroom. It was solid and dressed modernly. I was 14 at the time and we were the first family to live in that house and the land it was on had been in the family for nearly a hundred years so if there had been any deaths there in another house, we would have known. There hadn't been a house on that spot or near it. It was farm land before we lived there. It was a girl and after I stared at her for about 45 seconds, she just disappeared into thin air. I have no explanation for it at all.

Most mediums and such say they are always around and look like normal people just walking through the street, but I guess you have to have that gift to see them.

I'm sorry OP I didn't read all of the thread so I don't know if anyone else brought this yet. Someone else mentioned that the figure in the photo has a thin or stretched neck and appears to be elevated off the ground.You know what that sounds like?

I can't see his face directly or his feet at all. I also have no idea wether this is a real manifestation either because I wasn't there and don't have chain of custody for the evidence. But lets say for a moment we suspend disbelief and look purely at the image.

Besides seeing them first hand (which I have), full body apparitions caught on film are the Holy Grail of paranormal or spiritual activity. This man is wearing a belt a button down shirt and trousers. It may well be his last moment on earth captured in a photograph. A moment he surely regrets but one which is shared with us through the image and your admission of it here.

There is only one explanation for his stretched neck and apparent elevated height above the floor.... he hung himself. Do what MuzzleFlash said and check county records for any deaths on the property or maybe ask neighbors as well.

There are motion blurs evident and sweeps of light that don't appear to be lens flare. Sometimes that kind of thing accompanies a glimpse of the ethereal. You said something about a small boy in the home as well. What is that hanging off your sons arm? It looks like a small see-thru face with two eyes and the nick of a smile. See it?

It was my great grandfathers, whom gave it to my mother before he died. He said it was very old when he gave it to her, and this was nearly 20 years ago. I don't know if the arms has anything attached since we are never downstairs. How bad did seeing that girl frighten you? Don't feel like your hijacking the thread, I'm glad your posting this stuff. It makes me look less crazy

I actually just today noticed the white blob.. Interesting. Everyone is leaning towards a hanging, as sad as that is it would be nice to finalize something. Ill check records as best as I can, it would have to be in the woods because this house is brand new(they cut down a forest) or I guess it's possible for a family member or something to stay with you while being in that state?

the man in the photo looks rather large, he is a lot taller than the front door.

after hearing the stories my brother told me happened at his work place (old peoples care home), I am certain there is something paranormal that some people experience and others don't and some experience as real life encounter and never know.

residents at the home have told him on more than one occasion about the 'other people' they were talking to and more than one spoke to the 'same person' 'same description' and who should not be there and has never been seen by workers in the building.

they say babies can see things, maybe people nearing the end of life can start to see these things again to.

I don't think you're crazy.
Honestly, it scared the living hell out of me, hahaha!!! I didn't sleep in my room for three months and wouldn't go in there alone. It was probably a month before I would be in ANY room alone. It was a bad time for me, lol. I'm not as scared of such things now, but before that happened, I wasn't sure that I believed in the paranormal and then along comes some ghosty teenage girl and just flat out confirmed it for me. It was probably a year before I would sleep with the lights off. I was a HUGE chicken, lol!

What, exactly, is his claim? He claimed nothing and is equally as stumped as the rest of us. Nobody remembers nor recognizes the dude in the photo... that doesn't warrant discussion to you?
