Lockdown Hauntings

As I see it, this is entirely expected.

CBS news here in the Twin Cities is reporting that there has been a rise in reports of hauntings during the lockdown. It's expected because, first of all, homes are probably more likely to be haunted than offices, and second of all, that spending more time at home provides more opportunities to misinterpret odd sounds and so forth as evidence of ghosts.

Lockdowns across the country have left many people spending more time in their homes, and that’s led to a sharp increase in reports of possible hauntings.

Jason Hawes is a paranormal investigator, and host of Travel Channel’s “Ghost Nation.” Since lockdowns around the U.S. began in March, his website has seen a 35% jump in reports of hauntings.

While he believes some are likely the real deal, he thinks others have simpler explanations.

“People are spending more time in their home and everything from woods drying out, you're getting popping sounds, cause were getting into the warmer months of the year,” he said.

Hopefully at least a few of these new reports will be investigated once the pandemic restrictions are lifted. It's probably too much to expect something really spectacular to come out of this - any haunting that significant would probably have been reported already, even with residents out of the home for much of the day.

Still, maybe a few interesting cases will come to light that might otherwise have been missed.
