Haunting



Also Haunted.

A location in which paranormal phenomena occurs, in particular if over an extended period of time, is said to be 'haunted'. Typically hauntings occur at buildings or sites that have been around for a while or for which there is a long history, places such as castles, old manor houses, inns, graveyards and forts tend to be prime locations for hauntings. A haunting will also usually be accompanied by stories of specific individuals who may account for the haunting such as a deceased former owner.

Paranormal investigators tend to favour locations with a reputation for being haunted as prime targets for investigations. Sometimes hauntings can be reported to occur in recently built homes with no prior histories or can seem to be attached to an object or person rather than to a place.

Some people enlist the assistance of a priest or exorcist to rid a location of whatever spirits are thought to reside there with varying degrees of success.
