About National Paranormal Day

Rather fittingly, just like any paranormal activity, no one knows the origin of National Paranormal Day. The only thing we do know is that it was created in 2013, and that’s about it. But the truth is out there, and we may find out one day. The universe is packed with all sorts of oddities, dimensions, and great unknowns. Simply put, any occurrence that cannot be explained by logic or science, is more or less classified as paranormal, because it falls outside the realm of the normal. Vampires, ghosts, Bigfoot, and more, there are ever-increasing encounters with the paranormal around the world.
However, documentation of these mystifying phenomena only began a few hundred years ago. The man best known for collecting paranormal anecdotes is American writer Charles Fort. Some have even declared him the father of modern paranormalism. He compiled approximately 40,000 notes on paranormal experiences.
