Pacman-plus ghosts

It’s Halloween next week, so instead of joining the media and other capitalists in their orgy of orange and black consumerism, you could take David Nikel‘s line and just keep an eye out for ghosts around your area.

His blog post today pointed us to the Birmingham Ghosts and Hauntings website, where they take things a little more seriously than the woman off of Blue Peter – and even if the ‘supernatural’ is a load of unfounded nonsense, there’s still interest in the historical and the reasons these legends grow up.

And on the 31st if any children knock at your door, tell them the traditional British day for legalised begging is November 5th – and they’ll have to stuff some old clothes with newspaper and put it in a pram if they want anything out of me.
