Have You Heard of the Poe Toaster?

Well, for the last 200 years (until 2009) an unknown someone was known for coming at midnight and toasting Edgar Allan Poe at his gravesite on the anniversary of his birth. The mysterious "Poe Toaster" would leave roses and a half filled bottle of cognac for the long dead author of the macabre.

BUT in 2009 the tradition apparently came to screeching halt. Read all about it HERE as you celebrate today- which (in addition to being National Treasure Dolly Parton's birthday) is also Edgar Allan Poe's cake day!

(Not that kind of toaster, dumb dumb).
