2. To be honored mischieviously while bedroom has been left unoccupied
3. To have a current condition or obsession be highlighted by craft ghosts
From the Old English gast meaning "soul, spirit, life, breath,"
(cf. O.S. gest, O.Fris. jest, M.Du. gheest, Ger. Geist "spirit, ghost"), from PIE base *ghois- "to be excited, frightened" (cf. Skt. hedah "wrath;" Avestan zaesha- "horrible, frightful;" Goth. usgaisjan, O.E. gæstan "to frighten"). This was the usual W.Gmc. word for "supernatural being," and the primary sense seems to have been connected to the idea of "to wound, tear, pull to pieces."
