    They're in your basement.

    Go down there without a flashlight and sit silently in the dark for a while... they'll come to you. ;)

    Any dark, cavernous, quiet place will do.

    A lot of "ghosts" are, I believe, the result of the mind trying to fill in the relative lack of sensory input you experience when in the dark and quiet. Talk to someone who's been in a sen-dep tank for an hour or so...

    Got to love those orbs, amazing people think that dust, lint, and moisture are ghosts. Nice Orb, but i have plenty myself:D In fact looking through my iphoto's they are all over.

    I've never understood Halloween. its just been that thing that your parents say, if your english "It's that american sweet-indtustry thing".

    we had 2 trick or treaters this year. usually we get about 4, maybe the rain scared them off? pathetic kids! is there any history to this at all?

    Combination of terms (All Saints Day-Hollowed:Catholics) and "Sow-een" Celtic Irish year ending Oct. 31, I think. What the catalyst was to morph and evolve and where all the little goblins jumped in are probably a result of some unhealthy syncretism mixed with superstition.
