Today is… May 3rd #Paranormal Day
The term Paranormal (Meaning: Para- above or beyond and Normal – Ah, well, normal) has only been around since 1920. Paranormal is the phenomena in pop culture, folklore and other non-scientific bodies of knowledge, whose existence within these contexts to lie beyond normal experience or scientific explanation. This includes; angels, demons, ghosts, extraterrestrial life, UFO’s, psychic abilities, extrasensory perception and Cryptids (Bigfoot, Loch Ness Monster, werewolves, etc.). Anthropologist George Frazer, in his book “The Golden Bough” explains the soul is a creature in an animated body.
Sometimes we find ourselves caught between what we can understand and what we can’t.
Are there ghosts, monsters, UFO’s in the world? Maybe, it all depends on what you believe in. Perhaps they are nothing but our imagination, coming alive in the right setting at the right time.
How to celebrate: Watch a scary movie, preferably with a friend. Read a scary book. Start your own “Tales From The Crypt” television show, it’s pretty easy… you don;t have to prove anything just suggest.
