Ever felt the hair at the back of your neck stand on end for no reason? Ever visited a location for the first time and getting a distinct feeling that you’d been there before?

Well, it’s the 3rd of May, and today we celebrate Paranormal Day, the day dedicated to all things lying ‘beyond the range of normal experience or scientific explanation’, to quote the Free Online Dictionary. This is the day for all fans of the paranormal to get together to share their stories and experiences.

Paranormal phenomena include human ‘abilities’ such as telepathy, clairvoyance, and extrasensory perception, as well as subjects like ghosts, extraterrestrial life and UFOs. These are all subjects that have, through the ages, divided opinions, causing rather heated disagreements and debates among the believers and the sceptics. So, irrespective of which camp you belong to, Paranormal Day is sure to be a day of exciting and heated debate.

If you don’t feel like swopping paranormal stories, or getting involved in the arguments around the subject, you can always celebrate the day by popping a huge bowl of popcorn and enjoying your favourite paranormal movie. The paranormal has long been a Hollywood favourite, so whether you prefer a heartwarming romantic comedy, edge-of-your-seat action, chilling suspense or blood-curdling horror, you are sure to find something to suit your taste. If you prefer a more factual take on the subject, perhaps try a good documentary on the paranormal, such as the National Geographic’s ‘Is it Real?’ series. On the other hand, if you’re keen on some real out there stuff, there’s always the Internet…

Enjoy Paranormal Day, and remember – all may not be as it seems…
