Clearwater, Florida Ghost Sightings
I'm at a Catholic school right now, and I know it's haunted because I hear a demonic song Ring Around the Rosie in my middle school bathroom. They say it was a grave yard and a cemetery before becoming a school. I sometimes hear scratching on the walls and banging too. I suggest if you go be careful. It's St Cecelia Catholic school.|

Not too long ago while I was living on Redington Beach my husband purchased a silver urn at a yard sale along with some other items. The person he bought this from did not know where it came from or its history. It was quite beautiful and disturbing at the same time. It had two carved arms with animals and rams horns. Similar to old European hunting pictures or one of those old beer steins. It also had a liner inside the urn that was stained dark. He cleaned and polished it, and it was quite stunning and very heavy. He could not clean the liner so he threw it away. He laughed and said it had probably be used for some type of sacrifice.
We had no real use for it, so it sat on a shelf in our dinning room. Around that same time weird things started happening around our house. The dog would bark at things that were not there. Rooms would grow cold, and things would fall off shelves or go missing. Then one night our son who was about two at the time woke up and started crying. When we went to his room he could not be calmed down and was pointing. We saw nothing and chalked it up to a bad dream. This started to be a habit of waking and being scared for no reason. Once he was removed from the room he would settle down and go back to sleep. Then one night while I was home alone with the baby, the dog was barking, and the baby was crying, and someone was knocking at the door. I went to the door and called out, and no one answered. I looked through the peep hole, and no one was there. I picked up the phone and called my husband. While I was on the phone asking him to come home the phone went dead. I was standing in the dining room rocking the baby and happened to look over at the shelf where the urn sat. It looked like it was glowing. I thought it must be reflecting an outside light from somewhere.
Shortly after My husband came home and I told him what I had seen. He walked around the property and found nothing out of place. He picked up the urn and held it to the window. Nothing. There was no glow or anything unusual. I thought I was going crazy. The next day I told a friend what had happened. He went on-line to look up urns with the description of the one my husband had purchased. He found that ones similar to what we had indeed been used in sacrificial ceremonies around the 1800s. I told my husband we should sell the urn. I did not want it in the house any more. It was solid silver, and he could probably get a good price for it. The next day my friend who had found the information for me died suddenly of heart attack.
My husband took the urn to the back yard and started smashing it with a sledge hammer. It would not break easily. The strangest thing happened. It started to smoke and he kept hitting and hitting it. He took all the pieces and buried them somewhere in the woods of Fort Desoto Park. There was a burn mark left in the grass where he had destroyed the urn. All the strange things stopped after that. We did not stay in that house much longer, and we never disclosed what had happened there to the new owners. So if you bought a house on Redington Beach in the last twenty years, and you think it is haunted it just might be.
