As we say goodbye to the last vestiges of Indian Summer and quietly wade through a colorful autumn, we cautiously prepare ourselves for a long cold winter. Thank goodness we have something wonderful to look forward to – CHRISTMAS!

Tis’ the season as they say. For many this is a religious holiday based on faith and tradition. For others it’s a time of giving. It’s the season of family, friends, food, and phantoms. Hey, even Scrooge had a visit from the ghosts of Christmas Past, right?

For those who enjoy a more “spirited” holiday, I’ve assembled a paranormal gift guide – perfect for the most particular people on your Christmas list.
