Thanks for the story! I found it rather amusing even though here in south Alabama my husband has relatives who still call ghosts... You guessed it... haints!!! I find all of the old haint stories wonderfully entertaining! And they make great stories to tell while sitting around a campfire in the middle of the woods on a hunting trip!!!
Another reason I have heard of for blue porch ceilings is to deter wasps! Yes, apparently the bird egg blue color mimics the color of the sky and causes depth perception problems for the wasps which keeps them from building nests on the porch! I'm not sure if blue ceilings deters wasps or haints, but if I had a beautiful southern porch I wouldn't want either hanging around! ;)
