When shadow people attack
The first thought that crossed Steven Paynter's five-year-old mind was that someone had broken into the house in Bury, Greater Manchester, England. "Around 1986, my mother took me around the local estate to her friend's house," Paynter said. "I believed that she had been burgled because her kitchen - her entire kitchen - was covered, and I do mean covered, in big black handprints. Almost animal like."..

I saw paranormal Santa Claus
"We [were] driving by a lonely McDonald's and we [saw] something dashing through the clouds. We could all make out Santa's sleigh and 9 reindeer including Rudolph's nose." This is just one of the many Santa sightings that have recently been spotlighted on a website devoted to true-life tales of the unexplained.

MYSTERIOUS CREATURES:

Did Sasquatch kidnap Native American women?
M.K. Davis has an interesting video about Native Americans and in the West and discusses the possibility that perhaps Bigfoots may have been kidnapping Native American women. The hybridization is evident in some photographs such as one photograph that shows two Native American men with abnormally long fingers compared to their palm. There's also an unusual amount of hair on their legs and chest of the men...

For the Pacific Northwest, Sasquatch is real
To people around the country not from this area, there are three things they know about Washington and the Pacific Northwest: It rains all the time (they have no idea about the summer conditions of Eastern Washington), there is this cool thing called the Space Needle, and Sasquatch (or Bigfoot, whichever name you prefer) lives here...
