#Paranormal Wednesday - #CharlieCharlieChallenge
Who...or What is Charlie?
According to the rumors, "Charlie" is not one, but a group of Mexican demons. They may seem helpful at first but if you don't say a proper good-bye, they retaliate by causing chaos and poltergeist-like activity. What is a proper good-bye? Ending the session by saying, "Charlie-Charlie, can we stop?" Once the pencils move in any direction, drop both pencils to the ground as a means of closing the portal Charlie has supposedly entered.
Omg! For Real?
Actually...no. There are no demons named Charlie in Mexican folklore. Sorry, but no. It may have started as a social media experiment to see how far it would go. With over two million people utilizing the hashtag #CharlieCharlieChallenge in the past 48 hours, I would say the experiment has gone far.
As fun as it sounds, I probably won't be trying this any time soon. If I want to tempt fate, I'll dig up my old Ouija board in the attic. I'm waiting for the Charlie Charlie movie.
