Many of us may recall our first campfire. The smells, the tranquility, the comradery and oh yes, of course, how could we forget the ritualistic ghost story. These campfire tales are as old as the first circle of humans who crouched around an ancient fire - eyes glistening, faces flickering red-black-red.
