Yeah, I still can't solve Ghost's riddle either...

So here is an easy one until someone figures his out:

Who wears glass slippers and has a long nose?

As for Ghost’s one, I was going to suggest breaking it down and dealing with each line one by one. But I got nothing. So I resorted to a bit of Google.

It turns out those are verses from two different songs:

Anything My Mama Don’t Like by Helloween
Under a Violet Moon by Blackmore’s Night

But we still have to solve this part:

Shine one on the other's trademark. What do you get?

No idea...

Wow, that's a complex riddle!

So, shine a "violet moon" on "Helloween"?

But, it says "trademark" so, maybe the record label's name?

The labels the album with that song was released under were:

Victor Entertainment
Castle Communications
Raw Power

Good job Stu! (nod)

Mandle, when it comes to bands their trademark is their name. So Helloween and Blackmore's Night. But shining one on the other has me puzzled?!
Helloween's name has a pumpkin in place of the O. But Blackmore's Night is just regular letters. Pumpkin, night, moon. I get a feeling it refers to something Halloweenish?!

I'm still puzzled by Ghost's riddle, if you are out there could we maybe get a hint?

For now here's a classic one that I stumbled across.

At the start of eternity, at the end of time and space, lies the beginning of the end and the end of every place. What is it?

Can't be 'u'. If 'often during a month' means January, February, June, ..., then 'never during a day' would have to include Tuesday, Thursday, ...

Don't see how that an work with "often during a month" though.  Also depending on how you look at it, 1-365 could all be ruled out by "never during a year".
