If You Scream Out Your Window At Night In Sweden, Something Unexpected Happens

Sup Travellers?! Hearing someone screaming aloud at night usually means that there is trouble afoot and that Batman needs to jump into his Batmobile to save the day but not in Sweden.

In Sweden, screaming aloud at night is a point of pride and people respond to the scream with another scream. It's called the Flogsta scream and it's a long time tradition in Sweden.

Beginning in the 1970s, students in the Flogsta neighborhood of Uppsala, Sweden started sticking their heads out the window at 10PM every night to scream into the darkness. Some reports say it began as a stress reliever during exam times, others say it was in honor of a student who committed suicide.

If I start screaming out my window at night my entire neighborhood will either call the police or a psychiatric ward. But so it goes. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
