Happy Halloween!

Mysteria Words wishes you a Happy Halloween!

Legend of the Jack-O-Lantern

Carving pumpkins is one of the most practiced Halloween traditions. From celebrity faces to practically art, Halloween pumpkins have been transformed into probably whatever one can imagine. 
However, the original carved pumpkin was not even a pumpkin; it was a turnip. Why was it a turnip? Well, this tradition originated in ancient Ireland where pumpkins did not exist just yet. Nowadays, we carve pumpkins instead of turnips simply because they are much easier to carve. Furthermore, the original Jack-O-Lanterns were not used just for fun and decoration, instead they had a much more important purpose and it was to ward off evil spirits. Every Halloween, people of ancient Ireland would carve turnips and place an ember in them for protection from evils beings on the other side. The original carved turnips were not as festive as today's orange pumpkins. In reality, they were actually a lot more terrifying. Well, I guess, they had to serve their purpose.


Favorite Paranormal YouTube: Paranormal Kativity

In the ocean of videos that's called YouTube, everyone seems to find whatever satisfies their interest; paranormal fans included. Therefore, I thought it would be fun to discuss some of the paranormal YouTube channels that are worth paying attention to. For the first article, I've chosen Paranormal Kativity, probably one of my favorite new channels in general.

The clever name of the channel comes from the mixture of the content creator's name Kat and one of her favorite movies Paranormal Activity; creating Paranormal Kativity. The channel has been active for only a year now and it is already drawing attention. With a current following of roughly 20.000 subscribers, Paranormal Kativity has experienced a quick rise within the last few months. The channel mainly focuses on different paranormal phenomenon as well as strange mysteries. However, the audience is also allowed to take a peek into Kat's life throught her vlogs or videos wh…

Paranormal Experiences With My Roommate II

So, a few months back, I have written about some paranormal phenomenon my roommate and I have experienced. In that post, I mentioned that there are periods when strange things would happen and than, suddenly, out of the blue, they would stop. Well, it appears that the period of activity has once again returned. Considering the Halloween is approaching, it is not really that surprising.
It all started several days ago when multiple syncronicities would occur or, at least, they would be more noticeable than usually. Then, two days ago, in a middle of a night, my roommate heard someone breathing in our hallway. Next day, things got even stranger. My roommate went out. She wasn't gone for more than a minute when I heard her return home. She unlocked the doors and went to her bedroom. At the time I was in my room on my laptop so I just yelled out: "What did you forget?" Nobody answered. Needless to say, nobody was there. Few moments later, she actually returned - it wasn't…

It is often said that ghosts, spirits and different beings from the other side are able to walk the Earth on Halloween night. On top of that, reports of paranormal activities are higher around Halloween than any other time of the year.

2016, a Year of Clown Sightings

Who is afraid of clowns? If you are, this year's Halloween will be scarier than ever for you. Why is it so? Well, so far, it appears that this year is going to be a year of clown sightings. It all started back in August 2016 in South Carolina when several people started reporting encounters with creepy random clowns. Since then, clown sightings grew and, by now, pretty much the entire world is affected by it. Naturally, the phenomenon went viral making it pretty hard to ignore it at this point.
Initially, clowns were seen by woods or wooded areas where they would attempt to lour children into the woods with them. First children to come across them, report that the clowns were equipped with flashing green laser lights. Police was called to investigate but found no trace of clowns or anything related to clowns. As time went by, it appeared that the clowns were no longer limited to just the wooded areas. On the contrary, some people claim seeing them by the end of the roads or even at…
