From pagan time to present All Hallows Eve has been the time that ghost can walk upon the earth.  

Do you believe in ghost?  It seems to me that if you believe in the Christian God and angels and resurrection you must also believe in ghost. 

New England is full of ghost stories and first hand accounts.   A friend of mine who was working as a painter in an old Maine house swears he saw a ghost dressed in a Civil War uniform.   An older couple my wife and I know swear that while staying in a noted haunted bed and breakfast they saw a woman in white walk through their room one night.  

Even down south the stories are ripe.   In the Vicksburg (Mississippi) Battle Ground Park there are people who swear they have seen a southern officer mounted on a horse galloping through the park late in the evening.

I won’t even dignify a remark about the ghost hunter reality shows on television.

The one point that all these sightings have in common is that the ghost were wearing clothes. 


You are not born with clothes on and it only stands to reason that if you could appear after death you would be necked.  

Do you take your clothes with you when you die, or do ghost have a wardrobe to choose from after death and before their haunting presence?   

No one seems to question that the Battle Field ghost is riding a ghost horse, on a ghost saddle, wearing a ghost uniform and carrying a ghost sword.   Makes you wonder if he has ghost underwear on beneath his uniform and ghost socks inside his boots.

OK, a horse and a man: they can die.   But clothing – how can clothing return?   Can you be haunted by an empty suite of clothes or a ghostly bra and panties?    

I am just asking?

  1. Yes, I believe in angles, acute, obtuse, straight and even right angles. Angels not so much.

    Have you seen the show "Being Human"?? In that show the ghost is stuck wearing the cloths she died in.

    1. Thanks man. Perhaps I could blame it on dyslexia: probably not.

      The same underwear for eternity?

    2. She was brought back to life for several episodes. When it came time for her to die again because her body wasn't holding up, she spent a lot of time picking out her outfit for her ghost life.

      Don't know if she had underwear or did she go "commando"??

  2. You make a good point, LOL! I like how your mind works.

  3. I might not be able to take anything else with me but I do have a nice selection of diaphanous nighties packed and ready to go.
