Haunted Houses.

At a loss for Date Night? Research and visit a “haunted” house in your area. Get the landowner’s permission, of course. Spending a night jail for trespassing should be avoided. Oh, and remember all those horror flicks where the amorous, sneaking couple comes to a bad end.

 Who in this midnight hour comes here?

As the moon from some dark gate of cloud

Throws o’er the sea a floating bridge of light,

Across whose trembling planks our fancies crowd

Into the realm of mystery and night,-

***Excerpt from Haunted Houses, by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Disclaimer! Messing around in dark, abandoned houses and buildings is inherently dangerous. I suggest a daylight reconnoiter before bringing in your lover at night. Use common sense and don’t take risks with the building or the neighborhood. If the property does not pass the “safety” test, find a place that does!

Happy nightfall!

End
