Fiona Broome talks about ghost hunting during the winter. These are some of her suggestions:
If it's too cold outside for outdoor ghost hunts, investigate indoors. Check haunted theatres, hotels, restaurants, museums and haunted houses.
Review last year's investigations. Re-read your notes, review your photos and EVPs, and see which sites should be revisited for more research.
Plan the upcoming year. Include a ghost hunt at one location you've been planning to visit, but haven't investigated yet. If it's a popular location, make your travel reservations now.
Research other locations using new and popular ghost-related books. Also skim 19th century histories of your vicinity, looking for references to ghost stories, haunted places and other paranormal phenomena.
Practice with your ghost hunting tools. The better you understand them, and the easier it is for you to use them in the dark, the more you'll be able to observe during future ghost investigations.
Schedule ghost hunts starting the week before April 30th. In many cultures, that's a night when -- like Halloween -- the ghosts walk among us. Discover Walpurgisnacht (or Walpurgis Night) traditions and make the most of them on this second eerie and magical night for spirits.
