Video: An Alleged Christmas Bigfoot Sighting In Minnesota

“Say Merry Christmas, everyone!” So begins a strange video allegedly taken on December 25, 2014 in Northern Minnesota.

What begins as a simple family gathering around the Christmas tree turns into…well, let’s be honest, a somewhat dubious sighting of everyone’s favorite hairy, bipedal humanoid cryptid: The ever-mysterious Sasquatch.

Or Bigfoot.

“Oh my God!” The family quickly scurries outside, smartphones in hand, to film the large shadow as it stalks through the bare trees in the distance.

The dog — always the dog — runs out toward the strange figure, barking wildly at whatever it might be.

(Note to all dogs out there: Chasing after large unidentified monsters isn’t always the best course of action. Just ask Trigger.)

The woman behind the camera moves in to get a closer look, snow crunching beneath her feet. What does she find? Nothing she can see. “I hear something, though,” she says, “I still hear it.” The dog continues to bark and growl, standing alert, nose pointed straight ahead.

As the family slowly backs up toward the house, the camera turns to an open clearing. And just at that moment, as luck would have it, the dark shadow can be seen, clear as day, walking through the trees with a strange, lumbering gait.

With that, the family retreats back into the house, “slightly frightened.”

While the true nature of this video is uncertain, reactions seem to be mixed in the comments. Some feel it’s legitimate, others think it’s a laughable hoax, pointing out the relatively unenthusiastic response of the family to what should be an extraordinary encounter.

Even so, what has many perplexed is the reaction of the dog. While the dog initially approached the unidentified figure, it then backed off and continued to bark in its direction. However, it’s certainly possible, as others point out, that it could just be a person in a “Bigfoot suit” that the dog is reacting to (and even then, some aren’t convinced a dog would be so easily agitated by a person in a suit).

What I find a bit odd, with my late-night bleary eyed vision, is how the dark figure seems almost translucent at times as it passes quickly through the trees, leading me to think there may be some CGI magic involved, here, as well. That, or this Bigfoot is a supernatural entity, indeed.

As ever, I’ll leave you to decide whether or not this is a true Christmas Bigfoot sighting, or another paranormal hoax. And if you’d like to read up on more Bigfoot sightings, check out this year’s Bigfoot page.

  1. Too bad vertical video ruined a great shot. The dog would have been alerted to anything out of place. Our dog barked at big foot silhouettes we had in a field. When the dog ran back it thought the intruder was way out of its league. Most dogs can scare an unarmed human.

  2. If bigfoot truly exist then why hasn’t David Attenborough found evidence of its existence or even footage of it he has done so many documentaries on wildlife never bigfoot

    1. Uh, probably because they are inter-dimensional spiritual entities that fuse/meld in and out of our “limited,” everyday 3-D reality and their higher frequency, “advanced” realm(s) of consciousness. This is why we don’t find Bigfoot skeletal bones, carcasses, and/or crystal-clear photos and videos. Interestingly, electronic devices, various sensors/meters, and reliable cameras go haywire (electromagnetic energy?) and “fuzz up” or distort; fully-charged batteries in Bigfoot “hot” areas drain in a matter of seconds, as they do quite frequently with haunted locales/objects/portal locations. I don’t claim to understand the quantum physics, or as some refer to as “exotic science” (still unknown physics beyond our current level of human understanding or capability).

      In parting, Bigfoot and other bizarre, crossover creatures ARE here and have been here for perhaps thousands, if not millions of years. Here’s the spooky part in my mind: THEY are HIGHLY intelligent beings with seemingly “magical” qualities, and in spite of what our phony, hypocritical, lying, deceitful , and in my eyes, malicious MSM (mainstream media) says or portrays in pop culture, THEY are in general NOT our friends. The varying degree of maliciousness therein is still wildly being debated in paranormal circles today. Are ETs, Bigfoot/other cryptids, and residual ghosts/poltergeists innately harmful, demonically evil, and/or even deadly? In Bigfoot’s spiritual domain, are human beings mere play toys to be played with, casually traded, or occasionally broken? Some say we are nothing more than fancy food, perhaps a rare human delicacy or special treat in Bigfoot’s staple diet? One mainstay theory has various alien species and rarely seen cryptids such as Bigfoot/Dogman/Wendigo/Etc. are abducting humans. *See David Paulides’ Missing 411 National Park Disappearances topic. Are they malevolently experimenting and manipulating, while “card catalog indexing” our human DNA, life force energies/souls, and physical human bodies (sometimes called “shells”) in clinical storage tank vessels and human body chop shops? The thought makes me shudder, but I honestly don’t know…

      As children, we are pampered with the comforting though that “Monsters aren’t real! ” and “Honey, the boogeyman doesn’t exist!” or even, “Go back to sleep, for it’s all in your mind. You were having a nightmare…” Well, after decades of fairly consistent and dedicated research, I can wholeheartedly exclaim that, indeed, “monsters” DO absolutely 100% exist, and though all the well-intentioned parents had the “nightmare” aspect correct, one rather crucial component of the “nightmare” has gradually transcended our human domain — these frightening “nightmares” are no longer considered just bad dreams of an overactive imagination but are considered part of our “living and breathing,” day-to-day human existence. Additionally, if this isn’t bad enough in our ever-changing world, these increasingly brazen creatures are much more menacing and ultimately malevolent than we could have ever thought…

      P-e-a-c-e to ALL of you, you know who you are, the truly amazing, kind and open-hearted/minded people in this strange, dynamic world we reside in! Perhaps in a few thousand years or so, if human beings are still around, the “world,” as we know it, along with humanity’s paralleled progress, won’t seem so very strange at all…
