I would like to wish everyone Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year. With the season upon us, I will be taking some time with family and friends. I will see everyone back in 2015 at Abnormal Realms with new articles about the paranormal perhaps along with some new features. I hve been entertaining the idea of a podcast or even an internet radio station. Let me know on your thoughts on this by email. Now let's end 2014 by concluding the series on haunted forests with Old House Woods.

As far back I could remember, around the age of five, my first time going into the woods happened during a family camping trip. I recall being existed and amazed to all that nature had to offer. When exploring the forest, fear can easily take hold at hearing sounds you can't identify and seeing things you are unfamiliar with.The woods had provided me with my first experience involving fear of the unknown. In continuing the serious on haunted forest, these week's article is about the Dungarvon Whooper.

Since ancient times, the forest has inspired fear and nightmares within the human imagination. It has been the set for many tales and legends throughout the centuries even to this day within the movies. One could easily be filled with uneasy when walking in the woods, but picture what would occur if you discovered the area was home to the paranormal. In a three part series, I would like to share with everyone several of most alleged haunted forests in the world by first introducing Hoia Bacius.

In past articles, I had mention about learning local native lore while growing up in Northern Ontario. Most of the legends and myths I first heard about were told by my friend's grandfather who was knowledgeable in many aboriginal oral traditions. The times when I was over visiting, we would gather in garage and listen to some ancient tales. I became aware of the stories of the windigo, the monster bear, Sasquatch, the flying head along with many others. One myth I wish to share in this article, which was almost forgotten, is the tale of the Deer Woman or Deer Lady.
