Why are ghost stories more fun told in the dark, people like to be scared, and in the dark your ears can hear more than your eyes can see. The comment about the spirutalists using the dark to mask their tricks are true too. T.v. shows take advantage of our fear of the dark, or our wish to enjoy that shivery fear, and film their shows dark. It adds "atmosphere". I work with the public, and take every opportunity to tell people I'm interested in paranormal investigation. Most people tell me stories of their experiences. But almost NONE of their experiences happen at night. A lot of people investigate at night because they work days, and it's convenient. Sadly, a lot of people get their information from t.v. and movies, and they think the ghosties only come out at night.
