In 2012, The Paranormal Explorers started doing Ghost Dinners in Edmonton, Alberta. (Which is in Northern Alberta for all of you non-Albertans and non-Canadians). We had the dinners in a wonderful little restaurant called Two Rooms in the historic Dominion Hotel building. It is situated on the trendy Whyte Avenue on the southside of Edmonton. The restaurant itself is long gone with other venues replacing it over the years.
We started in the winter time and named our events: Dead Of Winter Dinners. We were able to do 3 dinners until some unforeseeable circumstances occurred and stopped the dinners.
The dinners are still available to anyone who would desire having them. These are the parameters:
Have a home, office or building that you can host a dinner in. (We do not supply the venue, you do)
Invite friends and family.
Have it potluck or catered. (We do not supply the food)
The Paranormal Explorers will give you the experience of a Ghost Dinner, enjoyed by young and old alike. Some ideas for your dinner could be a historic dress up; whatever era you decide upon. We can even do a séance if you are brave enough!!!
We will come in and set up our infrared video equipment along with a monitor on which everyone can watch paranormal activity on. Then we will talk about the world of ghosts and some of the creepy cases we have investigated! There will be a slide show of paranormal pics we have taken and people have sent to us.
Minimum: 6 people Maximum: 30 people (depending on size of room or location dinner is held in) . Contact us for more info, dates and price through this website.
It does not have to be winter time to have a ghost dinner, summer time is great because there are so many more venues you can get and create your own themed room for it.
So, I’m sitting in the living room, listening to dead people singing Christmas songs written by dead people. Not being flippant or negative, but if you stop to think, the majority of Christmas songs are from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and the people who wrote them are dead. Bing Crosby and a lot of other crooners are dead.
Our ancestors sat around a fire and listened to stories and people singing stuff that dead people had written also. Okay, not too sure about my segue way into this.
The Winter Solstice is a time to remember our loved ones who are with us and those who have passed. Those who cannot light the Yule Log, have a bonfire in the backyard, or a fire in the hearth; can light a candle and ask the Universe for an abundant 2016 and for Spring to come sooner than later.
Northern Hemisphere Winter Solstice:
(North America, Central America, Europe, Asia, Northern Africa)
December Solstice 2015: December 22, at 04:48 UTC.
Create your own traditions and rituals with the Winter Solstice. Ones that will help you get through the dark, cold winter and take you away from the commercial Christmas buying and pressure. Start with a candle or a drum and photos of family present and past. Honour your dead with memories and stories. This is the time of year that our relatives who have passed on and crossed over will come and visit and watch us enjoy the holiday celebrations.
Take note that in these celebrations, when you are taking pictures with your cell phone or a camera; to consciously ask your loved ones who have passed, to be in the pictures with everyone. And double check your photos to see if you have a glowing orb or two, or some mist-like stuff in the pics. You might even be lucky enough to get part of a figure or head. (e-mail us the pic if you do-we’d love to put it up on here!!!!)
Help a needy family, donate to a deserving charity, feed some animals in your neighbourhood. And have a wonderful Yule/Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa – everything!
