So, these below mentioned websites let you relive those years of your friendship with ghosts, and while you are doing that, also make your children sit with you to acquaint them with some excellent ghost stories. After all, their friendship with ghosts have just begun.
The 5 websites reviewed in this article are American Folklore, creepypasta, Scary For Kids, Everything Scary, and Scary Story.
American Folklore is the first website in this list to read scary stories online. This website is a complete package for all those people searching for stories online in different genres. As the name of the platform indicates, this website provides myths & legends related to United States. There are also separate columns for Mexican folklore and Canadian Folklore. Combined with all these tales are a lot of spooky, scary tales that have a separate tab to themselves. The above link will take you directly to this tab. The page shows a list of 10 scariest stories available on the website. You can read, or watch videos of these stories, and share your thoughts through comments section. These stories are written by professional writers working for a long time. Finally, there is also a tab with the name “The Spooky Series”; you will find a lot of story books in there that you will have to buy.
Before I say anything about the second website in this list to read scary stories online, I have to admit that this website has come up with an appropriate & an amazing name for itself. The stories on the website are called Pasta. creepypasta not only has a great name, but also some really great stories that will scare the shit out of you. On the home page of the website, you will find several stories listed one after another. You can read them and also rate them based on your experience. Other than this, there are popular tags like based on a true story, Micropasta, haunted games, and more. Each of these tags have multiple stories waiting for users to read them. Once you are done reading them, you can share them online and also leave your comments on the website. Lastly, the website not only lets you read stories/pastas of other writers but, also provides you with an opportunity to write your own pasta. Check out the link above.
The third website to read scary stories online is Scary For Kids. The introduction to the website makes it clear that the stories on these websites are short, creepy, and full of fear-ideal content for a ghost story. There are different categories that you will find on the home page, under which these stories are divided. Name of some of these categories are Urban legend, True stories, Ghost stories, Creepy stories, kids stories, Halloween stories. There is a long list of categories, even though some of them can be merged together to make it easy for users. Nevertheless, the stories you will find on the websites will literally make you shiver with fear. Just one rule, wait for the clock to hit 12 & close the lights. Check out the link above.
Everything Scary is the penultimate website listed in this article to read scary stories online. The website does not have a very pretty looking interface but, what it does have is a huge number of stories available to its users for free. These stories are not written by any professional writers. Instead, the website allows its users to come up and share stories of their own. These stories are then read by other guests and rated by them. Based on these ratings, all the stories are listed in decreasing order. Each of these story also has a Story code attached to them. So, if you are searching for any particular story, enter its story code in the relevant column. However, allowing guests to share their own stories also has its own drawbacks. You might find some stories are not up to the mark and lack in content. But, if you have any real incident to share that might give others goosebumps, jump up and start writing. Check out the link above.
The final platform to read scary stories online is Scary Story. There are no categories here and no tabs. You will find a list of stories on the home page awaiting to be read. Start reading from the top and go on reading any story you want to read. The stories are in written format along with pictures of ghosts, zombies, vampires, etc. You can comment on these stories, rate them, share them, and also subscribe to them. The profile of the author of a particular story is given at the end, and there you can also find links for some other stories by the same author. One story that I really liked on the website was that of a person who became friends on Skype with another person with a scary face, and minutes later found out that his face was similar to that other person’s face….

So, switch of your lights, pick up any website from the above stack, and start reading. Do let us know about the ones you like the most.
