My kids are convinced our house is haunted. I have to admit, sometimes I wonder. We've had shutters open by themselves, loud knocking on doors when nobody is around, and a sense of seeing something out of the corner of our eyes when nothing is there.
My daughter decided to do something about it. The other day she came home with this:
"What the heck is that?" I asked. I was concerned it might be some kind of drug.
"Sage," she answered.
"And what exactly are you going to do with it?"
"Burn it. Sage gets rid of ghosts."
So, the girl lit an end of it on fire and walked around the house, letting the smoke fill the air.
Let me tell you, that thing stunk!
I couldn't believe how bad it smelled after her little ritual.
"Well," I said. "I don't think anything is going to live here now. Including us!"
(I'm happy to report that we haven't had any more strange occurrences. So maybe it worked.)
Do you believe in ghosts? Do you think sage gets rid of them?
