Do you believe in ghosts? Whether a believer or a skeptic, today is the day to marvel in all things 'unknown'. From ghosts and spirits to UFO's and telepathy, literature has long been delving into the mysteries of this world, as early as when the Witch of Endor was contacted by King Saul to summon the spirit of the Prophet Samuel in the Old Testament.
Some of the most famous ghosts of our time include Banquo from Shakespeare's Macbeth, The Bell Witch of Tennessee who inspired the Blair Witch Project and An American Haunting, and not forgetting the famous Ghosts of the Past, Present and Future in Charles Dickens Novella; A Christmas Carol.
