Burial grounds

I have the TV show Property Ladder on right now. It is a house flipping show on TLC. The boys in this episode purchased a house that is rumored to be part of an ancient burial ground. They said in their interview that most people wouldn't mind buying a house in a neighborhood that could possibly be cursed, haunted, on a burial ground, etc. My first thought was, "I'm not buying that house, no way!" After thinking about it for awhile, I'm still not buying.

So I was wondering. If you found a house in a nice looking neighborhood and they told you that the entire neighborhood was part of an ancient burial ground, would you still consider buying the house?

I would. For some reason it has never scared me. It feels peaceful and spiritual. Of course I have never got on there at night. Just might be a little scary.

Probably not. I'm too afraid that the walls of the house might bleed or that the spirit of some ax murder might infect a family member living in the house. Can you tell that horror movies spooked me too much as a child?

no, i don't think so! I have difficulty walking by cemetaries in the DAYTIME and do not want to live in viewing distance of one or anything that resembles one. Remember Poltergeist where the whole front YARD erupts (this is the only horror movie i ever watched--at age 33 so i remember!); if i hadn't been convince that that was a bad idea FOR ME then, i did after THAT movie. MAN!
