It is popular to summise that most hauntings involve apparitions, ghosts or spirits of the dead. Most hauntings involve noises, such as strange footsteps, odd rustlings, faint whisperings, animal sounds and howlings, small and big thumps, tappings and rappings, unlikely smells, Physical sensations, such as a cold prickling of the skin, cold breezes and feelings of being touched by an invisible hand. There are some hauntings which are given the name poltergeist activitiy because the events caused are of the likes of move furniture, clocks which have stopped broken glass and mirrors by apparent smashing, and the paranormal movement of objects. Hauntings sometimes can be brought to an end through exorcisms conducted either by clergy or by mediums who reportedly can communicate with the ghost or spirit believed to be responsible for the haunting. Such measures do not always succeed. Hauntings do not follow a pre-defined pattern, some paranormal events manifest periodically or continually over a short period of time, such as a matter of days or they could form over a long duration, going on for centuries. Very little is known about why or how hauntings occur.
A haunting is a believed recurring presence of a ghost, demon, or similar supernatural being at a specific place. Old houses, hotels, restaurants, pubs, jails, prisons, and cemeteries are believed to be the most common haunted places. Belief in hauntings and ghosts spans the world geographically and is recorded throughout history.
