Happy Halloween

Where did it all begin?

Halloween is a holiday celebrated on the night of October 31 & has its origins in the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain that marks the end of the Celtic new year.

The festival of Samhain is a celebration of the end of the harvest season in Gaelic culture. Ancient Gaels believed that on October 31, the boundaries between the worlds of the living and the dead overlapped and the deceased would come back to life and cause havoc such as sickness or damaged crops.

The festival would frequently involve bonfires. It is believed that the fires attracted insects to the area which attracted bats to the area. These are additional attributes of the history of Halloween.

Masks and consumes were worn in an attempt to mimic the evil spirits or appease them.

Then the Christians thought it would make a great holiday, so they borrowed most of its elements and was officially made a festival holiday by Pope Gregory IV in 840 AD – All Hallows Ween.

If you gotta give the Christians one thing, its that they know how to make holidays.

Police Release Emergency Call Recording Of Man Who Mistook The Moon For A UFO

In England the emergency number is 999. One man ended up dialing that as he thought he saw a bright blazing light coming after him. He sounds kind of drunk.

Taking the call seriously the female operator can be heard logging the bizarre information before asking if the UFO was making any “engine noise”.

The caller replied that it was not, telling her: “I thought it was an aeroplane at first and then its just hovering with all these lights on.”

After being told local authorities would investigate his claims, the caller hung up, only to ring back minutes later to confess that he had made an embarrassing mistake.

When asked by the call handler what he had seen, the man replied sheepishly: “You’re not going to believe this, you’re not going to believe it, it’s the moon.”
