And yes, I have heard that it's taboo to thank certain types of wights, particularly the Celtic variety, such as fairies. I try to refrain from thanking them too much, if at all. Simply because it seems like bad manners to thank them for things they like to do. I've heard someone on a thread once say that it can make it seem like they are obligated to do things for you, or that they're doing their job just to satisfy you, which understandably can be offensive to some of them.

I wonder if these beliefs stem from any particular culture's thoughts about manners. In the US, thanking someone does not mean that they were obligated to do the task, it means that we are grateful for their action. It would be rude NOT to thank someone. I know different cultures have different responses to "Thank You". In the US, it's "your welcome', in Mexico it's "it's nothing", and in Japan it's "thank you".

I wonder if it would be more appropriate to interact with a spirit in accordance with the culture in which they live, rather than that of another culture. But I don't have any experience with housewights, just pondering.
