My Son Peter
my son peter Here's a spooky site. It's called 'My Son Peter.' I'll use the text from the site itself to describe it: "My son Peter has always loved to play hide and seek. In fact, he loves it so much that he will wake me up in the middle of the night to play. The only problem is that Peter has been dead for eight years. This website documents the hell I've lived and continue to live every night." It's a fairly simple site, and it doesn't look like it's been updated for quite a while, so maybe Peter has discontinued his hauntings. But it does have a ghost video of Peter that's worth checking out. (Oh, and apparently the site was created by an advertising agency called Yarnbird that specializes in viral content).

It looks like someone's using a moving flashlight in the video.

After visiting the Yarnbird site, I would venture to guess that "My Son Peter" is meant to be nothing more than entertainment. First of all, why would a person need to use "Yarnbird" to put up a site to tell the story of "My Son Peter" or the other two stories that appear on the Yarnbird site. It looks like a place where creativity is encouraged rather than truthfulness.

I wish it is real because I am very interested in ghosts. I believe this could be happen to anyone, but for this one, I don't know.

If you watch the video, this kid is kind of old for a three year old. I say it's crap.

Just went to the site, it is no more. The yardbird site is just a place holder. Looks like the mystery of this little boy is over for now.

come out come out where ever you are and see who wants to play. If you go to this site I will track you down and haunt you for the rest of your life.
