Hi carmenz,

According to Wikipedia.com, Static electricity, "refers to the build up of electric charge on the surface of objects. The static charges remain on an object until they either bleed off to ground or are quickly neutralized by a discharge."

Also linked below is a Science webpage with some more information.
