I actually jotted down a brief verbatim account of our customers' words,
because i was so interested in what he told me. Here it is, and it was
obvious that he definitely blamed his second wife for the introduction
of the night-hag:

     "This happened when I was married to my second wife. 
     Two times a window was left open and it shouldn't 
     have been and each time somthing came through and 
     the second time was worse than the first, and then 
     things happened in my life: Hag-riding. I've been 
     hag-rid, couldn't go to sleep at night, afraid to  
     sleep because of being hag-rid." 

This belief -- that night-hags enter through open windows while you
sleep -- was also told to me in the 1950s by my German-Jewish mother,
although she gave it as a folk-tale, not believing it herself, yet not
mocking it either. The man cited above was African-American. It's a very
widespread belief and i personally have no reason to think it is
fiction, because a great many people report similar experiences.

So if one WANTED to invite a night-hag, i think that sleeping with open
windows would be a good choice.
