What are the three things that make up a great ghost story? Well first you need a ghost who has been left wandering the world due to some horrible tragedy. Second you need a location that actually exists so that you can go there on a chilly fall night and tell the story while the wind tosses through the leaves and makes tree branches creek. And finally the third element to a great ghost story is the story teller who can actually take you to the place and time when the story occurred.

Ghost stories have been told according to History online since the first sights of ghost in the first century AD. You could say the rest is just scary story history. From poltergeist to haunted castles and ships, ghosts and their stories have been being told for centuries and there is no sign that it is slowing down.
