Group active since Mon, Nov 11, 2013
This is a group dedicated to the study and discussion of paranormal phenomena, both real and imagined. Do you have a story to tell about a ghostly encounter? A near-death experience? A haunted house? Have you been abducted by aliens? Just kidding on that one--well, maybe! This forum is open to any who would like to join and discuss such topics.
Say hello to our newest members, Ashley Raymer and Diane Novak! Welcome ladies! Make yourselves at home. Feel free to share your experiences, paranormal information, ghost stories, questions or anything in the paranormal or metaphysical realms that you think is relevant worth sharing! Welcome to the group!
I love October and all the spooky fun that comes with it, but this year's October is even more creepy, because this year, October has included a Friday the 13th! Much like breaking a mirror, walking under a ladder, or crossing paths with a black cat, even in modern times, many people firmly believe that Friday the 13th is a day of bad luck. The number 13 has a long history of being a symbol of bad luck. A common thought is that it stems from Christian tradition. It is thought the the number thirteen is unlucky because 13 guests attended the Last Supper, including Jesus and his 12 apostles, one of whom, Judas, betrayed him. As a result, another longstanding Christian superstition arose, that of having 13 guests at a table is considered bad luck. The next day after the last supper, of course, was Good Friday, the day of Jesus’ crucifixion, and that's one likely reason we have such uneasiness about this one day. Although no one knows 100% for sure from where the superstition stems or why there is such apprehension regarding Friday the thirteenth, one thing is for sure, a lot of people believe in it. No worries though, if you're one of the many superstitious folks out there, just remember, today will soon be over and tomorrow you'll be safe and sound again... at least until April 2018!
I've been away for a couple of weeks and it appears we have a few new members! Welcome guys! Make yourself at home! Feel free to share your experiences and stories, paranormal information or anything related that you think is cool and worth sharing! We don't take things too seriously here so have fun!
Sometimes a haunting takes place in less than creepy conditions. Fred Meyers are a chain of department stores located in the Washington area. Many of the employees of the Fred Meyer in Auburn, WA, claim to have experienced strange activities such as unexplained noises, boxes being thrown around and other objects reportedly moving on their own. The stock room is connected to the shoe department, where people, employees and customers frequently have shoes thrown at them. While no one has seen an apparition, some events seem too weird to be coincidental.
Made it back to Michigan in 13.5 hours. A new record! When I'm down there, I'm homesick for up here and when I'm up here, I'm homesick for down there. I really need to buy a winter beach house I think!
Good evening Paranormal enthusiasts and resident skeptics. Hope everyone is doing well. I'm still in NC. I will be driving home on Tuesday morning. I'm going to try to drive straight through but if I get tired, I'll stop for the night. The wifi is not so good here so I'm only on the computer sporadically. I'm very ready to get home, but this time with my Grandma has been so important for her and I'm glad I had a couple of weeks off to be with her. She was married to my Grandfather for 70 years, can you imagine? Thanks so much for all your kind thoughts and comments! I'll be getting back to ghosties, and things that go bump in the night soon!
