What You Need To Know About Sasquatch

Alternately called Bigfoot, Sasquatch is a legendary hairy beast thought to be living in the forests of North America, along the Northwest Pacific area. This mysterious creature is a cross between humans and apes. It stands approximately seven to ten feet tall, weighs around 200 kilos and has 17-inch footprints. Whether or not Sasquatch exists has been a hotly debated topic for a long time now. While many people believe the creature is as mythical as the Loch Ness monster and chupacabra, there has been a number of research-based pieces of evidence supporting the likely existence of Sasquatch.

Sasquatch documentation dates back to several centuries ago. The Native American Indians regarded Sasquatch as a sacred being that protected the forests. In the 18th century, three furry "giants" ran amok in England but further documentation about the incident was lost in the 1900s. Russia added Sasquatch to its list of endangered species in 1965. Two years later, France and Germany also declared the creature as endangered.

Early in 2013, a Texas veterinarian and her research team were able to unearth DNA allegedly belonging to a Sasquatch. Unfortunately, skeptics continued to brush off possible evidence related to the creature's existence. The results were never published in any science journal. Ketchum was not the only person who discovered details about Bigfoot. In 2000, remains of 9 feet, 6-inch creature were found in Klamath, Oregon. If the remains were proven to belong to a "human," he would have been the tallest man on earth.

Different researchers provided conflicting evidence on Bigfoot's appearance, eating habits and behavioral quirks. Some researchers argue that Bigfoot is more ape than man, while others assert it is more similar to a human. A group of scientists found data that the creature is vegetarian, but another research claim that Bigfoot is a carnivore and prefers to eat meat. Bigfoot researchers also believe that Bigfoot is incapable of sneezing and can run fast at a speed of 35 mph. Despite the contradiction, this growing list of evidence suggests that the scientific community is gradually opening its doors to Bigfoot research.

The Legend of the Kraken

The Kraken is one of those mythical beasts that we all know and can see in our minds, yet rarely ever understand the origins of. Generally passed down nowadays through word of mouth or references in modern films and literature, the Kraken simply exists for most people. The Kraken has become an idea as fundamental as the ocean itself. Many will be shocked to find out that the origin of this great beast is from actual accounts that were meant to be taken as factual, stemming from Scandinavian history and folklore. The preponderance of the Kraken as a myth stems from the actual terror of going out at sea and finding a monster the size of which your mind cannot even comprehend. This idea has a primal attraction to us, as we are all scared of the unknown. We are often terrified of the thought of what great mysteries may lie beneath the ocean.


The myth and legend of the Kraken were passed down by both written and spoken words through Scandinavian historians and fishermen. It is said to be…

History Of Day Of The Dead

In some countries, there is a very particular culture that celebrates a day to honor those who have left. The Day of the Dead, known in Spanish as Día de Muertos, is a celebration of Mexican origin in which families gather in cemeteries to show respect for their loved ones.

It goes back to ancient traditions about 3,000 years ago, where rituals were performed to celebrate the death of the people of those civilizations.

By the end of the 20th century, the Mexican inhabitants had already begun to celebrate this day in the country. It is a two-day holiday, November 1 (to honor children and babies) and November 2 (to honor adults). People who celebrate this day believe that a bridge is opened between the world of the living and the spiritual world so that the deceased can cross it and visit their living relatives.



Mexico is the country that mostly celebrates this day, but there are others such as Peru, Honduras, Nicaragua, Ecuador, Colombia, El Salvador, and Venezuela.

Usually, families…
