Singular Cerebrations: Spring Fever

What exactly do leprechauns have to do with a Catholic saint, again?

What exactly do leprechauns have to do with a Catholic saint, again?

This is an exciting month for us at The Singular Fortean Society.  Spring is almost here, and we can't wait to get back out in the field and do what we love--investigating all of the weird and wonderful corners of the state of Wisconsin.  We'll be initiating a few new things coming up, too, the first of which will be a monthly guest blog.

Our first guest blogger is Colin Schneider, and if you haven't heard of him yet, you soon will.  He's an ambitious teenager and cryptozoologist out of Ohio, and we really think you'll enjoy reading what he has to say on the facts and folklore surrounding some of your favorite fortean topics.  Look for that this month, and let us know what you think.  And if you'd like to be featured in the blog, then contact us here, and we'd be happy to work with you.

Naturally, if there's any kind of faerie or nature spirit attached to a holiday, we're going to obsess over it.

Also, in March, we'll be focusing on fortean phenomena from the Emerald Isles in honor of Saint Patrick's Day.  I've always wondered what some of the significant symbols, like shamrocks and shillelaghs, have to do with the holiday--not to mention how a holiday celebrating a Catholic saint managed to become intertwined with stories of the fair folk.  So join us as the ground once again becomes green, and we dig into the stories behind leprechauns and other Irish folklore.

Yours in Impossibility,
