Whether these were just stories or they are real, I can assure you it was a lot of fun listening to them. My grandfather told me a story once about a supernatural encounter, but I could see it in hi eyes, facial expression that he believed it was real, so that is good enough for me. Maybe there are things we can't explain, I know I have had my fair share of these "unexplainable things"….who knows….


a lot of fun listening, and then hoping you go to sleep that night! :D

I had to google what a banshee was. ha but I have never had an experience with a banshee or believe in them. I do believe animals can sense death as a few others have stated.

Mythology of these creatures has been shared and studied for decades and most people who give you the typical 'no' answer, but in my opinion, anything is possible.
Have I ever came across one? No.
Would I want to meet one if they are? Hell yes. (Well, maybe. It depends.)
Do I really believe they exist? I think there's possibilities that lie around their existence.

I really have split feelings about supernatural beings. I don't think banshees are real thought, but maybe I think that way because i don't encounter many stories tied with it?

I hope they aren't real. They scare the heck out of me, lol! They are interesting because they invoke fear the way other things can't, and I think it has to do with the way sound can really scare people.

Believe it or not but banshees are a Water Spirit. Ghosts of people who died near water. At least that was what I was told about Irish legends. From the stories I have heard, they don't cause death. They warn that death is near. Do I believe in them, I really don't know. Then again, there are forces within our world that we don't know about.

Probably not in the form that legends claim, but more in a warning noise from nature? I'll let you know if I meet one!

I can't really say that I believe in such things in the Hollywood sense, but I feel like there are many things in this world that are magical and mystical and mysterious, and I wonder if these things don't have their origins in something real - albeit less theatrical.

There are so many unnatural incidences which occur in life, that science can't explain. Though I've never had any personal experience, I'm not a non-believer either. What's the harm in believing that banshees exist? :wink:
