When you refer to skeletons in the closet, you are referring to deeply held secrets. This is because you put things you want to hide in the closet(See: coming out of the closet, Ellen DeGeneres). Things which happened in your past make great closet skeletons! A few examples:

1. You had sex with your girlfriend's sister.
2. Your girlfriend's sister had sex with your girlfriend.
3. You accidentally killed a prostitute in Vegas during a wild party.(See: Very Bad Things)
4. You accidentally killed an old person.
5. Your business trip didn't involve usual business.

Notice how all the skeletons in the closet revolve around you? Because no one else knows. Or do they?
