Many holidays that we celebrate have one or two traditions that truly define them, but they also have many other smaller traditions. Halloween is no exception to the rule: while dressing in costumes and trick-or-treating are the most defining Halloween traditions, we also have things like pumpkin carving, hay rides and haunted houses that are associated with the holiday. Haunted houses can be a lot of fun to visit around Halloween, with all of the decorations and people putting on a scary show, but the question is: would you actually live in one?
Today’s infographic from the Huffington Post and Realtor.com shows us just how many Americans would choose to buy or live in a haunted home, given the choice to do so. Out of those surveyed, 62% would consider buying a “haunted” house while 35% said that they have already lived in one. When asked what would make a house haunted, most agreed that a cemetery on the property would do the trick, although the answers ranged all the way to having an old battlefield near the home.
