FRIDAY, September 23rd - American Indian Day*

*American Indian Day is observed on the fourth Friday of September every year. This year, it is going to be celebrated on September 23. Although this is one of the most important days in the U.S., Native American Day is a public holiday or official state observance only in some states. However, it has been steadily growing in both scope and popularity. Something important is that some states celebrate this day on the second Monday of October. *** First Day of Fall***

Saturday, September 24th - National Ghost Hunting Day*

*National Ghost Hunting Day is celebrated on the last Saturday of every September. This year, the world’s largest ghost hunt will be observed on September 24. This is an annual international investigation of the paranormal. Ghost hunting has something to offer for everyone — some prefer investigating abandoned mansions with creepy histories, while others would rather guard ancient crypts. Ancient ghost stories around the world focus on historical records or literature. Science, religion, and academia are skeptical of their existence. Ghosts are often considered a reflection of our subconscious, and sometimes our deepest fears. Whatever ghosts may be, there’s no denying that all of us have been spooked out by something inexplicable at least once in our lives.
