Will-o'-wisp Is the name of ghostly lights seen hovering over marshes or graves. They are also known as miasmic lights, corpse fire, fairy fire, ignis fatuus (Fool’s Fire), or jack-o’-lanterns. They are associated with the souls of people or animals at the transition between life and death. People who are foolish enough to follow these lights, are led to a early death in isolated marshes or deserted graveyards.
