Goopy Ghost at St. Patrick's Day
December 2017 by V. R. Duin


The ghost became bright, coin-sized rounds
Beneath which some rocks added pounds.
Some gold-colored spray
Improved their display.
Just wait 'til those thieves come around!
(“The Goopy Ghost at St. Patrick's Day”)

A goopy holiday ghost rises from a holiday book series for children to help explain the signs of a ghost sighting.

Each book in the Goopy Ghost's Holiday Book Series for Children presents children with a fun ghost sighting. What are the signs of a ghost sighting? The goopy holiday ghost often appears where pumpkins are being grown or after pumpkins are put to good use in holiday celebrations. In Goopy's holiday book series for children, pumpkins that are squashed, baked and carved lend a subtle contemporary flair, a bright new spirit and a bit of mischief to hallowed traditions. Pumpkins free Goopy. Sightings of this ghost may give rise to some discussion about why ghosts do the fun things that are blamed on them.

Ghosts are much studied, but little understood. Could ghosts be experimenting with a new dimension that is not in keeping with their past reality? Why else would all of the children's candy disappear after our favorite goopy holiday ghost found its pumpkin home in flames on Halloween? Did the Goopy Ghost live in a place or at a time in which no Christmas trees were growing or glowing inside homes? Why did Santa's cookies disappear? Why didn't the milk go away, too? Why would the Goopy Ghost stick things on walls with its goopy goop? When decorations move around overnight, will this mischief be interpreted as signs of a ghost sighting? Certainly, these interesting activities are perfect material for a holiday book series for children.

The unknown and the unexplained are so exciting! The Goopy Ghost holiday book series for children may create some agreement about how this goopy holiday ghost formed and why it is here. That gold suddenly jumps out of its pot may also help to strengthen a belief in the power of the supernatural over science. The unknown and the unexplainable are awesome and compelling. What else could be out there? To see unexplained shadows from the corner of one's eye is an eerie phenomenon that often takes on a life of its own. Imagine watching something huge crash into your living room. These signs of a ghost sighting cannot be the mere pranks of a child, can they? Who wants to hide while we watch and wait to learn more?

The goopy holiday ghost very well may hide with you. Together, you and Goopy can learn a lot from ghost sightings. Is it really possible to turn goop into gold? Is it possible to party with leprechauns? Why does the dog bark at something nobody else can see? Did the dog cower, before leaving the site of this new haunt? What will the cat do as this droopy, goopy holiday ghost wanders into its next haunt? Over time, many people witness twinkling lights, filmy mists, goopy goo or unexplained moving shapes. Will these fortunate souls believe they are witnessing the signs of a ghost sighting? The Goopy holiday ghost wants everyone to believe in the magic of each delightful ghost sighting in his holiday book series for children.
