When people ask me, “Have you ever seen a ghost?” I always say, “I think so.”

I’ve seen a lot of things I can’t explain but the most solid of my encounters was with the Hat Man. I was around 5 or 6 years old and taking a nap during the daytime. I remember waking up, but my eyes still closed as something in my body told me not to open them. I didn’t keep them closed, however.

When I opened them, I sat up and was instantly met with a very large shadow man wearing a short Abraham Lincoln type hat at the end of my bed. I only remember feeling the intensity of his stare and for some reason the fact that he was wearing that hat and was a solid shadow. I screamed for my mom and, shocker, she told me it was a dream and to lay back down.

I know it wasn’t and wouldn’t have anything to do with staying in that room for probably a month after. I never thought much of that encounter as I’ve seen some sh!t since, but recently (within the last 2 years) heard about the multiple encounters with him, or “it”, and realized I had an encounter with this entity myself.

Strange to find out there are multiple encounters with this guy, and I’m also interested in what he wanted, or what his visit meant.
