Things that go Bump in the Night
Stretching throughout history it seems that all cultures have ghost stories. Many of these stories are parables, and were used to warn people of tragic outcomes to bad or immoral behaviour. Sometimes, stories of haunted areas were used to simply keep people away from those places.
Hauntings usually involve more than the appearance of a shape. Hauntings usually occur in a fixed location, often involve heightened unexplained activities.
Some people report haunting activities as random events, while others say happenings tend to occur around specific dates.
One thing is clear. Whether or not you are a “believer” many people have experienced things that they cannot easily explain.
Do you have a story of a ghostly encounter? Maybe you know of a haunted area, or other paranormal activity?

Written by: The Overlord
Have you seen Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files? If not, you should. This documentary/reality program has been on the air since 2010 and originates on the American channel Syfy.
It has a simple premise. In each episode, the investigation team reviews several video clips claiming supernatural activity, decide which two cases are to be investigated that week. The team then breaks into two groups and we follow each as they investigate their stories. The team is led by Ben Hansen, a former FBI agent and consists of a noted paranormal researcher, a photographer, a journalist, a stuntman/special effects expert and a technology expert.
Part of their criteria for an investigation are as follows: is the footage compelling, are the witnesses credible and is it something they can attempt to reproduce or test.
A Haunting in South Porcupine
Submitted by: Jess Germain, South Porcupine, ON
Spirit - The English word spirit (from Latin spiritus "breath") has many differing meanings and connotations, most of them relating to a non-corporeal substance contrasted with the material body. The word spirit is often used metaphysically to refer to the consciousness or personality. The notions of a person's "spirit" and "soul" often also overlap, as both contrast with body and both are understood as surviving the bodily death in religion and occultism, and "spirit" can also have the sense of "ghost", i.e. a manifestation of the spirit of a deceased person. - Wikipedia
"For the last 5 years I have been visited frequently by a little girl about 7 years old!" - we received the following information from Jess Germain in South Porcupine.
Shadow People - Is Someone There?
Submitted by: Robin Allen, Timmins Ontario
I was in the bathroom and I walked out into the living-room and almost walked into a figure standing in the doorway watching my husband who was on the couch watching tv. I thought it was real, so I said Woh, excuse me.

My husband looked at me with a funny face and said what? I said I saw someone standing in the doorway. He said "OK (sarcastically). There is no one there, never was".
Is This Photo Proof That Bigfoot & Humans Share A Common Ancestor?
Bigfoot researchers have long supposed that the legendary cryptid is a primate, and therefore related to modern humans.
Recently discovered photo examinations which originate from Shawnee, Oklahoma may hold an important clue.
William Bradley has long held an interest in Sasquatch. Himself a native of Shawnee, Bradley states that Oklahoma has long been a hot bed of Bigfoot activity.
Bradley claims to have multiple talents which have helped him discover the truth.Read more ...
When Hunting For Bigfoot, Look Up.
Regular readers to ParaNorthern on Facebook or our website know that I am officially a Bigfoot skeptic. Even though I want to believe that a large primate inhabits the considerable wilderness of the North American continent, most of the so called evidence falls into the category of Bollocks. (Ask someone British.)
So when I read recently that some Sasquatch hunters are suggesting that we look to the tree tops for sleeping Bigfoot I laughed out loud. I could not picture something of the supposed mass of of this bipedal cryptid climbing a tree to get a good night's rest.
But then I saw this video.Read more ...
