For thousands of years, cultures around the world
have cultivated an unusual, shared belief, that in the Autumn
season, the Vale between this world and the next thins.. and
the dead return to roam.
The Hungry Ghost Festival in Hong Kong and India’s
Pitney Paksha are just a couple of examples, but the most
well-known, of course, is Samhain, the ancient Celtic holiday that
gave birth to Halloween. One can’t help but wonder
if these traditions, in fact, honor a real supernatural occurrence.
A mass visitation of nocturnal visitors...
What do these spirits seek, and what sorts of
otherworldly creatures follow them through this transient
On this episode of Belief Hole, we explore chilling
accounts of a shadowy cast of characters, from the ancient
Tuatha De Danann, to the fear-eating
Dogmen of Matanuska Valley, and all sorts of eerie
entities in between. Join us, as we light a candle, set out the
candy, and conjure up, true tales of Halloween
Also.. Jon dreams of other realities, Jeremy chooses
tricks over treats, and Chris threatens to use the Ouija!
