In many traditional accounts, ghosts are often thought to be deceased people looking for vengeance, or imprisoned on earth for bad things they did during life. Ghosts may be linked to houses or even cursed objects. The appearance of a ghost has often been regarded as an omen or portent of death. Seeing one's own ghostly double or [[doppelgänger]] is a related omen of death.<ref>Christina Hole (1950) ''Haunted England'': 13-27</ref>
