Ghosts are supposed to be more active around 3am.  Paranormal investigators have actually dubbed this time of night "dead time" because it does seem that a very large proportion of ghosts sightings appear around that time.  So it seems that they tend to haunt more at that time.  Investigators aren't sure why this is the case.  One theory is..... dew.  It has been discovered that spirits seems to like dampness.  It appears to help them manifest.  It is around 3am that there is often a lot of dew on the ground.

But some believe that it ISN'T the case that ghosts apepar more at night but merely that our senses are more alert in the dark than they are in the light so we have a better chance of spotting them in the dark.

I've heard this too. I went for a reading from a spiritualist medium years ago, I never told her that I woke up nearly every night at 2.50am. But she told me that I did and that a spirit was trying to connect with me. I never experience any contact but it went on for nearly a year, which was weird. Who know's!?

The idea of 3am is from "The exorcism of Emily Rose" (2003) where it's said that 3am is the devil's hour because it's the opposite of 3pm where Jesus supposedly died. So it's a fairly new idea that for some reason have been widely accepted in the paranormal community as the most active time of day - (I haven't seen any earlier references to 3am, but if they exist I'd like to read more about it)

Not correct, an earlier film reference off the top of my head is the 1980 movie  The Changeling featuring George C Scott which also used 3am as the "Witching Hour".

And I've known about it for 16 years.

Thank you I couldn't find any references when looking for "Devil's hour" - apparently I didn't look up "witches hour + 3am". I just found it curious that 0:00-1:00 have been the witching hour and allegedly most active time for several centuries and lately (well at least as early as 1980 apparently :P) people are starting to think it's 3am? But the term "devil's hour" is from "the exorcism of Emily Rose" or are there any earlier uses of it?

Lol :)

As far as I recall it might have something to do with the fact that 3am is supposed to be the darkest time of night. I never thought of it really

There are certain tidbits of 'Oral History' that is passed down, this is an example of that. I am fairly certain that Scott was a member of a few secret organizations. That is the most likely source of information like that.

Funny thing is..every now and then someone like G.C.S. spills the beans and puts it in a movie..lol
