Ghosts

Kaitlin's post got me thinking about the subject of ghosts, and how many places we believe to be haunted. There are so many inns, restaurants, and other miscellaneous places that gain a lot of their customes simply because they claim to be haunted. These places usually have an urban legend to tell about their ghost or ghosts, who is usually a former resident of the house. I'm sure people believe these stories, but do you think others who may not believe play along just because they enjoy the thrill? Here is a website listing a bunch of places in DC that are apparently hauted. I think people like to be scared (that is why we go to scary movies, right?), and adding a legend to a ghost makes it more real.

Related to all our postings about ghosts, does anyone watch Trading Spouses on Fox on Monday nights? There was one episode where the new mom thought there was a ghost in the house and hired some ghosthunters to come a test the house. It was pretty funny. They took themselves very seriously and had all this equipment they made but everything they were observing seemed ridiculous. Check it out if you can.
