obviously it depends on the person. im personally skeptical but when i was down in New Orlans i went on a ghost tour. i know what sounds fake and lame but i learned about a lot of history and ghost information. (in the french quarters down there is a a hotel that is haunted so if you want to stay at a haunted place id go there). every one who lives in New Orleans belive in ghosts some say they see them on the daily. some people have shrines and take it quit seriously. but unless a dramatic experience happened in your house i doubt you have ghost there.
