dycker-heights-spooky-houseWould you sleep in a haunted hotel? Take a ghost tour? Or it is scary enough when you check into a regular hotel to find the bar has already closed?

We debated all other questions during a rousing Halloween edition of our regular #TMOM Monday night Twitter party. Read on to relive the fun and join us next week when we talk great kid pix and give away more than $500 worth of cool stuff in a party sponsored by Fisher-Price. RSVP here to be entered to win.

What’s the scariest thing that ever happened to you on a trip?

Would you stay in a haunted hotel? Why or why not?

 

@: Never, it would be like The Shining.

 

@: No way. I like to SLEEP in a hotel not worry.

 

@: Nohow, noway! (I’d be afraid I’d have a heart attack!)

But we do have some very brave tweeters that would be up for the challenge…

 

@: I’d stay in a “haunted hotel” if I was with others that would be okay and ride it out. I don’t need any jokers with me!

 

@:  I would try it. Myself with husband. Not with my kids. They’d lose their minds. The neighbor scares them.


Have you ever seen a ghost? Do you want to?

 

@: No and only if it was my grandma.

 

@: No and no!!

 

@: I think I did when I was a kid….freaky!
