    I love odd customs, this one is particularly fun to me. I worked for a Greek family once that had many odd superstitions, I would ask them what they were for, they would tell me. I found it all groovy. In fact, the family did too, I was the only employee they did not fire in the 7 years I was there. Lol.

    To keep with the "Halloween" feel to this article, here is another snip from it:

    "Two years ago a Medieval woman's skull was found near Venice with a stone driven through its mouth - which experts said was the traditional way of dealing with vampires and preventing them from rising from the dead."

    The pic shows the stone in the mouth, so cool.
