Easter Eggs (Bag of Bones)

    Im hoping to start compiling a master list of Stephen King's Easter Eggs. What an Easter Egg is, in Mr King's case, is an intentional reference, theme, or recurring theme that signifies something greater than the story itself. Its one of Stephen King's attributes that I admire the most because a story is no longer a linear "Once Upon a Time.... " over to "..and they lived happily ever after" because there are extra dimensions and tangents that tie it to other stories in a much larger creative universe.

    I usually look for Easter Eggs in Mr King's books passively, as I have done here, so I may have missed many. If you find any in Bag of Bones , please post them here:
