Morning Start: The ‘most expensive ghosts’ sold for over $2,800 US

Your morning start for Wednesday, Oct. 27, 2021

Good morning and happy Wednesday! It’s a mix of sunshine and clouds today, with some rain in the forecast for the evening.

Fun fact: The ‘most expensive ghosts’ sold for over $2,800 US

In March 2010, two vials allegedly containing the exorcized spirits of an old man and a young girl were sold in an online auction in New Zealand in March 2010 for $2,830 US, earning the ghoulish pair the Guinness World Record of the most expensive ghosts ever.

According to Guinness, Avie Woodbury, the original owner of the vials, said the ghosts had been captured in her Christchurch house after she enlisted the help of an exorcist and an ouija board to contact and trap the spirits.

The auction attracted more than 200,000 page views on the Trade Me website and was won by Safer Smoke NZ, a company that produces electronic cigarette substitutes. All proceeds from the sale of the expensive spirits — which were allegedly trapped in bottles with holy water — went to an animal charity.
