Queen City Haunting

For whatever reason, I love getting scared, especially around Halloween. I love it all, the movies, the haunted houses, the events, etc. But what creeps me out most of all, is not the gory commercialization of Halloween (I consider it mostly fun), but rather the supernatural aspect of it all.

As a Christian, who believes in God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, angels, etc., I also believe in the dark side of Christianity: Satan, demons, etc. It almost goes hand-in-hand: good vs. evil.

So for me, it’s natural to accept that a supernatural realm exists. The key is to acknowledge it. Not embrace or let it have power over you or your emotions. To me, my God is bigger than any dark, supernatural force out there. So I am not afraid. Do I get spooked? Most definitely. I am human after all…

I do believe that when people pass away, their souls manifest in spirit form. I don’t like to use the word “ghost,” for it trivializes the person to me, so I refer to them as “spirits,” different from angels and demons, for they are humans whose souls have passed over to the other side.

Saturday was the absolute perfect night to embark on the The Queen City is Haunted Tour. Held by the same guys who started Queen City Underground Tour, Newport Gangsta Tour, Newport is Haunted Tour and the Cincinnati Civil War Tour.

This weekend is your last chance to check out the The Queen City is Haunted Tour. I highly recommend it, but only if you’re up for it. Tour organizers even made another Groupon available before the season is over.

I love how all the pics I took with my digital camera, as I was walking, (unintentionally) turned out blurry and distorted. Definitely added to the creepy tone of the night. I used Instagram for an (intentionally) added creep factor.

Friends, fall night, full moon and fears?

Perfection.

What’s that in the window?! A ghost?! Nope. Just the moon’s reflection.

  1. It was a great tour… wish I could have gone into Music Hall though. I also took some video and posted it on my blog.
