Ghost hunters, UFO enthusiasts, and fans of high strangeness have reason to celebrate as it is National Paranormal Day.
In keeping with the curious subject matter recognized on May 3rd, National Paranormal Day is something of an enigma itself.
The website Days of the Year says that the holiday has been celebrated since 2013, yet there seems to be no record of who created National Paranormal Day nor why they chose this specific date.
The only readily apparent connection to the topic seems to be that May 3rd was the day that Charles Fort, seen by many as the proverbial father of paranormal research, died.
However, as with the origin of UFOs and the nature of Bigfoot, this is, fittingly, pure speculation.
