Halloween has been branded satanic by some, but those of us who have all our marbles know that its just spooky fun revolving around old legends and trappings of fall.
Think there’s no evidence for ghosts? Think again! Why, in fact just last year the Met in New York hosted an exhibition of “spirit photography.” 19th century photographer William H. Mumler convinced many people of the existence of ghosts with his faint ghostly images on film, which you too can reproduce!
Although a Central Florida professor has attempted to prove that vampires are statistically impossible, and therefore a myth, I argue here that he has misinterpreted the facts in a way that only an obvious vampire would.
“Legend Detectives” for the Discovery Channel have investigated the true identity of the notorious Dracula written about by Bram Stoker. It has been speculated that the persona of Dracula was based on the real person Vlad the Impaler, who himself has been portrayed as a nasty character (although perhaps unjustly.)
What’s spookier than a black cat? If you live in Boise, I hope you didn’t have your heart set on one, as adoptions have been banned during this time of year.
Have a fun Halloween! Let me know in the comments your funny/interesting/nerdy costume ideas, or what costume you wore that was the biggest hit.
