• Germany – 856 A.D.
  • The first poltergeist – a ghost that causes physical disturbances such as loud noises or objects falling or being thrown around – was reported at a farmhouse in Germany.
  • The poltergeist tormented the family living there by throwing stones and starting fires, among other things.
  • Poltergeist translates from German to English – “noisy ghost.”


Love, thieves, and fear, make ghosts.
