In folklore, the witching hour or devil’s hour is a time of night associated with supernatural events. Witches, demons and ghosts are thought to appear and to be at their most powerful. Black magic is thought to be most effective at this time due to the veil between worlds being thinner. There are multiple times that can be considered the witching hour. Some claim the time is between 12 and 1 a.m., while others claim there is increased supernatural activity between sunset and sunrise. In the Western Christian tradition, the hour between 3 and 4 a.m. was considered a period of peak supernatural activity. This time is also referred to as the “Devil’s hour” due to it being an inversion of the time in which Jesus supposedly died. The phrase “witching hour” began at least as early as 1775, in the poem “Night, an Ode.” by Rev. Matthew West.
