As is the official ghost hunting season.

What a lot of people don’t realize is that ghost hunting goes on year-round. It’s just this time of year, when the weather starts to cool down, leaves turn and it gets darker soon that the attraction of things that go bump in the night starts to get more interesting to people.

I know, because my husband has been a ghost hunter for years and years.

Have I personally been on an investigation?

Yep. Once.

And that was enough for me.

I’ve never done well with things that go bump in the night, and going on an investigation, even with my husband, I was freaked out enough for my lifetime.

Doesn’t help that the ONE TIME I decide to go on a hunt with my husband, a flipping TORNADO decides to descend on my home, and makes a shot for my house. Fortunately, my house made it through with little to no damage, and we were safe, thank goodness.

I know people who love to be scared, all in fun. They love scary movies, pranks and rides that go a bazillion miles an hour, just to scare them.

That’s great, for them.

I don’t care for scared very much.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Halloween–costumes, candy, colors of the season, all that jazz. I just don’t do the constant barrage of “Oh, let’s scare you now!” My husband loves it. And as my daughter gets older, I am seeing signs that she is loving it too. Just the other night, my hubby flipped it over to Paranormal Activity on tv, and my daughter (she’s 11) started watching with him.

Daughter: Um, isn’t this supposed to be scary?
Hubby: It kinda is.
Daughter: I don’t see the big ((Big thump and scream on tv)) Seriously??? That’s supposed to scare me?
Hubby: :::laughter:::
Me: Ahh, she is your daughter.

I have a feeling I’m going to have another ghost hunter in the house who runs toward the scary sounds rather than away.
