Umm. . .I don’t think so. . .what I find scary is my maternal grandmother’s house. And it’s not enlightened at all. It’s pretty dark and closed and gives you a feeling of doom and despair. And my mother is pretty keen on dragging me there. . .well, I’m 24 but she pretty much treats me like a kid in kindergarten. . .oh wait no they are treated pretty well. . .I think prisoner is the word we’re looking for here.
Anyway, getting back to the ghost issue. So, who the hell says that enlightened houses are full of ghosts. . .it’s abandoned houses, well-lighted or not, that ‘ooze ghosts’.
But since we already know that, we should either never abandon houses for long periods of time or once we have, not go back there without an invitation ’cause that might disturb the new inhabitants that were only making an abandoned house useful.
