A Catholic priest I know talks about his experience of laughter in paranormal events, in fact he says laughter is a good indicator to him that there
is something genuinely amiss beyond what is normally apparent.
He's funny when he talks about it because he freely admits he never watches horror movies or listens to ghost stories and such as they keep him awake
and frightened for nights afterwards but when he's called to bless a house in which people report strange things happen he has to go.
He usually finds theres some psychological reason for the people's experiences but on a few occassions reports that in walking into the house he knew
immediately there was something dark there and then he starts chuckling. His favourite was in one house where as he was talking to the family and
discussing how he would bless it the television in the corner (which was off) sparked into life at full volume for a second then flashed white and
went off again with a bang. He reports everyone else jumping, a girl in the house screaming and him in fits of laughter to the point where he had
tears in his eyes. On subsequently blessing the house he felt the dark spirit depart.
He is convinced the laughter is a particular gift of the Spirit to him because he's normally such a jumpy easily scared person.
