World Contact Day

For anyone who has ever wondered if they’re alone in the universe or not, let us introduce World Contact Day. This is a holiday that’s observed annually on March 15th and brings all extra-terrestrial enthusiasts together for just one 24-hour period. It’s a day to ponder whether or not we’re really alone in the universe and whether they have made it to the little blue sphere that we call Earth.

According to tradition, it’s also a holiday for people to try to communicate telepathically with beings that might exist out in space. Of course, not everyone will be into doing that, so for these people, they can just throw an E.T themed party.

The History Of World Contact Day

This holiday was first created by the International Flying Saucer Bureau (I.F.S.B.) in 1952. This organization was founded by Albert K. Bender who relayed a story where men-in-black visited him at his home and communicated with him telepathically.

He then reportedly found about some revealing truths about U.F.O (unidentified flying objects) and their visits to Earth. He was then visited by three men-in-black again who threatened him not to publish his findings.

This prompted him to shut down the I.F.S.B. in 1953 but before he did, he asked members to send out telepathic notes to aliens in outer space to ask for a peaceful and mutually beneficial relationship with humans on Earth. Yes, we know this is all a bit far-fetched, but World Contact Day is still observed by people all over the world.

Observing World Contact Day

Anyone who wishes to observe this holiday by sending out telepathic messages into space can do so if they want. In fact, quite a few people are probably going to be observing World Contact Day in this way.

Of course, there are probably other people who might feel silly celebrating this holiday in this way. These are the people who are going to be throwing U.F.O parties, learning more about U.F.O phenomenon, or using the hashtag #WorldContactDay on social media.
