While I really enjoy Halloween I don't believe in ghosts or anything of the sort, however, according to this latest survey, I appear to be in the minority!  A new poll finds that a lot of people believe they’ve seen ghosts in real life.

The poll conducted by Groupon finds that more than 60% of people say they’ve seen ghosts in their lifetime, with 40% believing their pet has seen one too. As for how they reacted when they spotted the ghost, most people were likely to say they screamed and ran away, with men twice as likely to do so than women. Other reactions include crying, hiding and fainting.

But ghosts aren’t the only thing that scare people. The survey also revealed the Top Ten fears of most Americans, with snakes actually topping the list.

What is your top fear? Hmm. Mine? I'd have to say rats; both the four-legged and two-legged kind (wink wink)! ~grace
