I had something random happen to me today.
I was on the way back to my dorm when some guy came up to me and gave me a bunch of coffee creamers and salt packets.
He told me to keep them with me ‘for protection’ and walked away.
Thanks, I guess?
Obviously, these traditions and 'rules’ come from old superstitions about about the Fair Folk. Everyone seems to be taking it pretty seriously though. Not that I mind – it’s kind fun. Too bad the school traditions didn’t take any inspiration from Greek mythology. I was (and still am) obsessed with those stories as a kid.
Also, I found this really pretty key outside. I asked around, but I couldn’t find the owner. If you recognize it, message me.
