Ghosts are the restless spirits of the dead. They appear on Earth because they have unfinished business here, or they were otherwise denied access to the normal afterlife. When ghosts are present they usually make the area around them cold.

Traditional ways of keeping ghosts at bay include: keeping dung in the house, eating wolf meat, planting lilies in your garden, carrying with you a rowan (ash) wood cross strung together with red thread, and planting bay trees in your yard.
