Supernatural Day

Every September 13th is observed as Supernatural Day. This is a day that was originally designed to pay homage to the television show “Supernatural” but is now also used to celebrate all instances of the supernatural in pop culture.

This means that the holiday can be observed by binge-watching episodes of the television show, purchasing and using Supernatural merchandise, or by connecting with other fans of the show over the internet. It also means that people can observe it by learning more about ghosts, the supernatural, or the unnatural.

The History of Supernatural Day

The show Supernatural was created by Eric Kripke and was first broadcast on September 13, 2005, on the WB Network. The show starred Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles as Sam Winchester and Dean Winchester, two brothers who hunted monsters, demons, and other supernatural beings.

In 2006, the first fan convention dedicated to the show took place in Nashville, Tennessee. The following year, another fan convention was held in London. Since then, there have been events all over the world as the show eventually obtained cult status.

In 2018, the mayor of the city of Austin, Texas, Steve Adler, proclaimed Supernatural Day. He conceived it as a holiday to celebrate the television show, its fans, and its cast and crew. This day has been a holiday ever since and is observed by fans of the show from around the world.

Observing Supernatural Day

Supernatural Day is a holiday that’s usually observed just by fans of the show, but anyone who has an interest in ghosts and ghoulies may also want to observe this holiday as well.

Regardless of the intentions behind the celebration of this holiday, one thing is for sure: news of this holiday can be spread far and wide using the hashtag #SupernaturalDay on social media.
