Halloween on Undernet !

Post by Razvanet »

Soon a fameous "American" holyday will be celebrated by many people. The All Hallow's Eve a.k.a. Halloween is becoming a more popular holiday every year as more people find out about it, for those who don't know here is a version of The Halloween Legend:

(1861-1865). During that time, a handsome young stranger appeared in the Clay Bank Creek area of Dale County. Locals believed the man to be a Yankee soldier who either deserted or was separated from his unit. "He was very handsome, and all the girls were warned by their parents to stay away from that man," Brunson said. Not all the girls heeded this advice. "Pretty soon he and the most beautiful girl in the community had fallen madly in love with each other and were seeing each other secretly," he said. Knowing the community wouldn't accept a Southern belle marrying a Yankee, the two planned to elope. The young girl confided this secret only to her best friend. The friend couldn't keep the secret, however, and soon the whole community knew. The problem was that the two young lovers had no idea everyone else knew of their plans. The night the two planned to elope, the young belle snuck out of her parents' house, traveling bag in hand. Her Yankee lover was anxiously waiting in bushes nearby, mounted atop a white horse. "When she got almost to him, the men of the community were waiting on their horses, hidden, and they sprang off in pursuit of him," Brunson said. The young man fled off into the night, followed by the angry posse. He could hear the frantic screams of the girl, and he planned to outrun his pursuers and return for his bride-to-be. His plan was never to be. As he crossed Cow Pen Creek in Gerald, a small community between what is now Daleville and Enterprise, the group of angry men caught up to him. There are two versions of what happens next. One says the posse fired their muskets at close range and hit the young man in the neck, causing his head to fall off into the creek. The other version is that his head was cut off by the sword of one of his pursuers. "The legend goes that he continued to ride and was going to come back and pick up his head.The tragic love story happened long ago, but legend says the Headless Horseman still rides through the night seeking his lost head. It's said he can usually be seen at midnight on All Hallow's Eve.

Not much related to Undernet but i thought it will be fun to know...many people change their nicknames that day and joke with their friends. Others even go out wearing a costum and "Trick or Treat" at peoples doors and it's a lot of fun...
Comments and other users view of this holyday are welcome !

Happy Halloween !

P.S. Celebrated on October 31,

In order to respect the traditions, Undernet will organize a Halloween Special Event this year, co-ordinated by the Promotions/Live Events section within the Undernet User Committee.

More details will be provided to you all as soon as possible.

To answer the previous questions, X did not change its nickname last year. ScaryX was two years ago :) Furthermore, enjoy the Halloween Banner!

Cheers!
