Having an imaginary friend is a totally normal part of childhood. It shows that the kid’s imagination is up and running and sometimes it can be quite hilarious how they interact with their invisible friends. Often the “friends” are the ones to blame for the troubles the little kids have gotten into, or they entertain them and share their daily life. However, when there’s what seems like paranormal forces involved together with a vivid imagination, it gets slightly scary and parents at least have Twitter to share the frightful things kids say with others.

At the end of the day, haunted or not, adorable or creepy kids and their imaginary friends are pretty hilarious and the following are the best tweets from the viral thread online. You can share your hilarious or scary stories about kids’ imaginary friends in the comments.

This reminds me of a conversation my uncle started with my dad, he has a toddler that mumbles to herself and the walls. My dad asks why she does that and my uncle says I don't know maybe she talks to the dead. My dad then says "Have you ever thought that your dead, I mean it's a possibility that she talks to the dead so maybe that's why she talks to you because your dead. Although we can talk to you so maybe we can talk to the dead too."

Wow, this one is intriguing. It would be even creepier if there actually were two people with those names, relationships and exact death.

A two year old doesn't comprehend this kind of imagination yet- because he/she's two. Soo it's extremely creepy when you hear of 2/3 year olds saying these things.

Then the imaginary friend must be cast out and directed to go towards the light where everything is wonderful and there's lots of candy.
