Have you ever questioned why you always seem to be waking up at 3 am? This is regarded as The Devil’s Hour, which is considered to be the particular time when most hauntings occur. Urban legends and eerie stories of The Devil’s Hour can be seen in Anglo-American, Native American, and Hispanic culture, but what is it about it time that both fascinates and scares us? There are many sides to The Devil’s Hour — as theories are a separation of both science and evil.
The word Witching Hour was introduced in 1560 by Pope Pius IV. A surge in witch-hunting had started because people could not grasp why illnesses were so widespread and tried to blame the activity of witchcraft. This caused widespread fear and distrust as people would turn to those they suspected were performing the dark arts.
