Dear Ghostvillagers,

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Ghostvillagers! It’s the day we’re all a little Irish, or at the very least we feel their influence. Celtic legends are all around us. That “orb” in your photo, could it be a willow-o-the-whisp? That rainbow; think there’s a pot of gold and a leprechaun nearby? Is that distant cry the scream of a banshee warning of something bad to come? We embrace these legends because they speak to something primal in all of us whether we’re Irish or not. Every legend has roots in a location, and that location has its own set of beliefs and practices based on the people who live there. To explore these legends is to celebrate people. It’s always about people in the end.

No, I’m not Irish, but I embrace these influences. This month we’re going to dig into Celtic legends a little deeper on Ghostvillage!

I’ve been buried with projects as of late. Working on the Ghost Adventures show has certainly kept me busy. We’re now filming season six for the Travel Channel. Plus I have two new books in the works, my lecture schedule is quickly filling up, and then there’s 30 Odd Minutes, which is growing to a whole new level these days. Be sure to check it out if you haven’t watched the show in a while!

Speaking of events, I’ll be joining Darkness Radio for their event at Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia (the last one at this location). If you haven’t been to this prison in a while (or ever before), you definitely want to join us. It’s a huge and amazing haunt:

I’m also still looking for more time slip stories. If you believe you’ve witnessed a slip in time where you saw an entire scene out of place, please reply to this email and let me know about it! I’m especially interested if you had some interaction with that other time period.

Enjoy the rest of the newsletter below.

Supernaturally yours,

Jeff Belanger

Graveyard Shift at Slater Mill
Join us Saturday, April 21, 2012 at the haunted Slater Mill in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.

The creepy giggling of a little girl. The horrible shouts of a young boy in pain. Shadowy figures seen roaming about the grounds.

All in a day's work at Slater Mill.

For more than 200 years, Slater Mill has sat on the banks of the Blackstone River. It was built in 1793 by Samuel Slater and was the first successful water-powered, cotton-spinning mill in North America. It is considered by many to be the birthplace of American industry.

It's also one of its most tragic haunts... Join us for a dinner, lectures, and hours of investigating! Click here for more information:
