I’m not going to argue if you think ghosts are real. But I need receipts for some of the other stuff on this list. Someone polled 2,000 Americans for Halloween, and asked if they believe in the paranormal.
They found 63% of us believe in some type of paranormal activity. Over HALF of us think ghosts are real. And a surprising number of people think vampires and werewolves are real too. Here’s what the poll found:
1. Ghosts . . . 57% of Americans think they exist. 49% even said they’ve felt the presence of a ghost before.
2. Vampires . . . 22% think they’re real. So just over 1 in 5 people.
3. Werewolves . . . also 22%.
4. Zombies . . . 22% again. (I’m starting to think 22% of us will believe anything.)
The poll also asked about non-Halloween stuff: 39% of us think aliens have visited Earth, 27% believe in Bigfoot, and 22% say the Loch Ness Monster is real.
55% think a full moon makes people behave in strange ways, 56% think some people can see and predict the future, and 51% think it’s possible to read someone’s mind.
