I’m breaking through
I’m bending spoons
I’m keeping flowers in full bloom
I’m looking for answers
From the great beyond
— Peter Buck/Mike Mills/Michael Stipe (R.E.M.)

If you’ve ever experienced something beyond the norm or had an inexplicable otherworldly happening, you’ve stumbled onto the right day. National Paranormal Day is for those fascinated by the unknowable “other side.” If you don’t know your normal from your paranormal, don’t worry — you can still celebrate! Just head online to learn about the movies, documentaries, and science fiction that deal with this subject.

And fear not, we have everything you need.

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.

Even something as small as déjà vu can be considered paranormal. People have been experiencing sensations and witnessing the inexplicable for centuries now. 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 the modern paranormal. He compiled approximately 40,000 notes on paranormal experiences.

These compilations include reports of events such as teleportation, frogs falling from the sky, strange substances, unexplainable explosions, crop circles, levitation, UFOs, and appearances and disappearances of mysterious beings.

Most likely, Fort was also the first person to hypothesize the strange appearances of otherworldly entities and the disappearances of people by alien abduction. As unexplainable as they are, these ideas are becoming increasingly common, with hundreds of reports filed every year regarding extraterrestrial beings. However, no matter how much evidence there is and the number of reports submitted by people who have had firsthand experiences, the absence of empirical evidence makes these events difficult to investigate scientifically.

Paranormal activity has also been an intriguing subject in the entertainment industry. In 1993, “The X-Files” debuted on television and became a cult classic. Before that, “The Twilight Zone” set a benchmark for strange occurrences in 1959. In more recent years, the first movie of the “Paranormal Activity” series was released in 2007 and received worldwide accolades for its unique filming technique.

1.Explore a haunted house
You might already know the haunted houses in your neighborhood, but you can also search for some of the best national ones for some added spook. Try visiting creepy places, armed only with flashlights. Jumping out of your skin from fright is a great way to spend National Paranormal Day!

2.Visit a graveyard with your friends
This one is not for the faint-hearted, but they say that to truly have a chance of glimpsing a ghost, go to places where they are most likely to congregate, such as the cemetery. If you’re seeking out a particular ghost, then their headstone is a good place to start. Bring some candles to set the mood.

3.Have a spooky party
Everyone loves Halloween, and National Paranormal Day is the next best thing. Now you can celebrate the ghouls twice a year! They sure do appreciate it. Put on some spooky tunes and boogie on late into the night, or turn down the lights and put on a scary movie at midnight, so that your supernatural guests have time to stop by.

A. It’s spooky fun!
National Paranormal Day is the only time of the year (well, apart from Halloween) that the spirits and ghosts of those who have passed away come out, and get our attention for a day. Don’t let them spook you!

B. Paranormal parties
Ghosts never need an excuse to party, and neither should you. A great way to create a themed Paranormal Party is to hang white crepe paper strips from the windows and serve marshmallow ghosts (you can draw their eyes on with chocolate sauce) floating in hot chocolate.

C. Make connections with others — even the dead
You may be scared by the prospect, but National Paranormal Day is a great time to connect with other paranormal enthusiasts or discover your own areas of interest. You can make more connections by showing off your new contacts, or even videos of your unearthly experiences, on social media, using #nationalparanormalday.
