The word poltergeist is a German word that stands for noisy ghost or spirit.It is said to be responsible for physical disturbances and turmoil.Many claim that poltergeists are capable of physical abuse like hitting, pinching, or tripping people as well as moving objects, and making noises like knocking on doors.They traditionally are described as troublesome, and they haunt a person versus a location.
Even though the name of these entities have been tagged to Germany lore, some variations of poltergeist activities are found in many different cultures.Early claims of spirits attacking and harassing their victims date back to the 1st century, but the name of poltergeists only started to become more common in the early 17th century.Some believe that tales of poltergeists are only hoaxes, and some others think that it is just illusion, memory lapses, or wishful thinking.But for some, this is a very real and terrifying reality.
