The spooky story of why you should not sing at 3:00 a.m., if not you’ll…

I‘m sure many of us have been warned by our parents to not to whistle at night for fear of attracting unwelcome visitors from the afterlife. But did you know that whistling at night is nothing compared to what happens when you sing at night?

The reason for not doing so is that it may attract something even scarier than your typical wandering spirit. The explanation for the reason why we should not sing at night is down to the fact that ghosts and spirits are active at night and if you whistle or sing, it may attract their attention and they may just follow you.

A common tale passed down by many is that there was once a girl who did not believe in the warnings of her parents and brushed it off as a superstitious old wives’ tale. One early morning, at exactly 3.00 a.m.,  while she was singing, she felt a chill run down her spine, but she did not pay attention to it. As the days followed, she could feel the presence of someone around her even though she was alone, and whenever she turned around to check, there was always no one present.

When she was at home, she would hear the voice of a child shouting “bring me out to play”. Attributing it to the TV or radio in the living room, she would check it out and be shocked to realise that neither of the two appliances were switched on.

The initial unexplained voices that she heard culminated into even weirder events such as being awaken at night due to someone tugging at her ankles or hands while she was sleeping and also of unexplained drawings appearing on her desk, seemingly done by a child. She finally realised the cause for the unexplained events one day, when she was walking home at night when suddenly a child jumped out of nowhere and scared the living daylights out of her, disappearing into thin air the moment she screamed her lungs out.

According to legends, singing children’s songs at exactly 3:00 a.m. would attract child ghosts–reason being, at 3.00 a.m., the spirits are more active and therefore would be able to hear your singing.

Here is a warning to all of you: it is best to heed the advice of your parents and not whistle or sing at night, for who knows what may happen if you choose to tempt the spirits.
