Every year on the last Saturday in September, ghost enthusiasts, thrill-seekers, and paranormal investigators from all over the world come together to celebrate National Ghost Hunting Day. This peculiar and spine-tingling holiday is a testament to humanity’s enduring fascination with the unknown and the supernatural. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the history and significance of National Ghost Hunting Day, explore the allure of ghost hunting, and provide some tips for those eager to embark on their own supernatural adventures.
National Ghost Hunting Day first came into existence in 2016, thanks to the efforts of Haunted Journeys, a company specializing in paranormal-themed tours and events. This date was chosen because it falls close to Halloween, a time when interest in the supernatural is at its peak. The day is meant to honor ghost hunters and paranormal investigators, as well as to encourage the public to engage in their own ghostly pursuits.
