* ''TheFarSide:'' "Henry! Hurry up or you're gonna miss it--ghost riders in the kitchen!" Larson had been originally considering doing a different variation on that ("ghost riders in the living room," etc.) every day for a week just to mess with people, but, perhaps wisely, [[IncrediblyLamePun chickened]] out.

* In Spain, The Santa Compaņa ("Holy Company") is a deep-rooted mythical belief in rural Galicia and Asturias. It is also known under the names of "Estadea","As da nuite" (The Night Ones), etc. It may be related to Odin's Wild Hunt, or the Breton Celtic westward processions of the dead to the End of the World. Many different versions can be found; however, the common image is a procession of the dead or souls in torment that wanders the path of a parish at midnight. A living person carrying a cross and a cauldron of holy water leads the procession. The person carrying the cross must never turn around or renounce his duty in leading the Santa Compaņa; he can only be freed from his duty if he manages to find another person to carry the cross and the cauldron. To avoid this obligation the person who sees the Santa Compaņa pass by must draw a circle on the ground and enter it, or he can also lie face-down.

Sometimes the Hunt was hunting the dead or dying with the purpose of [[{{Psychopomp}} taking them to the afterlife]], such as the Norse version which was led by Odin or the Welsh version led by Gwynn ap Nudd. A Greek version is said to have been led by Hecate or Artemis. Some medieval regions were led by Diana -- though interestingly enough, ''not'' in any region where Diana had been worshipped historically.[[note]] There's only one goddess mentioned in the New Testament, and it's Diana; folklorists consider it the most likely source.[[/note]] The other huntsmen were often the dead or hapless mortals swept up into the hunt for all eternity. This was later adapted by Christianity as being led by Satan, Herodias, Habundia (?), or sometimes a localized huntsman figure like the English Herne the Hunter, the French Hellequin, or the German Hans von Hackelbernd, with the other huntsmen or witches being the damned and the hounds themselves being the souls of unbaptized children.
