Note: It may be a particular head-canon of mine that the ghosts in Hogwarts knew all the secrets of the castle and those who lived within it, and carried those secrets with them. And I think on cold nights, especially when one emotionally exhausted Headmaster was pushed to the limit of his burden, they tried to provide what cold comfort they were able.
