The very creepy tale of the ghost that haunted the Mamamia office.

“Since the hair extensions were expensive, I had to keep them in for another six months. I don’t really believe in ghosts but my colleagues who sat next to me said they could feel something lurking until the extensions were removed.” – Laura Brodnik, Mamamia‘s Head of Entertainment.

‘You had a ghost visit last night didn’t you?’

“Okay so for context it’s just my mum and I at home. One night last year we heard a bang in the corridor. At the end of the corridor we have a display table which has a large, heavy candle in the middle of the table. The large bang had been the candle falling onto the floor, around 2am ish. It absolutely scared the sh*t out of my mum and I, because it was really random, and the candle had been in the middle of the table so it wasn’t like it was teetering on the edge! 

“We triple checked the whole house, no intruders, phew! But there was so little that could rationally explain it. I was working at a magazine at the time, and we had a resident psychic. The next morning, without any prompting from myself, she came up to me at work and said: ‘You had a ghost visit you last night didn’t you?’ When I got home, I saged the hell out of the house, I had no idea how to react!” – Isabella Ross, Mamamia‘s Senior News Writer.

‘She saw the same ghost on the same night.’

“My mum lived in Japan during the ’90s in a five-story apartment building. She was level three, her boyfriend was level one and her best friend level two. Weird things would always happen in each apartment, but especially level one. 

“They would go to sleep and start hearing footsteps inside their own apartment and above. Because they knew each other they would know when no one is on level two was home, and even when no one was there they would still hear footsteps. It got to the point where furniture was being moved, windows were being opened and appliances were being turned on. All at night and only on level one would things move.
