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

To all students who are taking exams, or receiving results today, this is for you.

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. It’s a veritable symphony of woe. Apparently it began in the 1970s and has been going on — no joke — every single night since it started. Some reports say it began as a stress reliever during exam times, others say it was in honor of a student who committed suicide.

Whatever the case, it’s a pretty cool tradition and way to let off steam, even if the rest of us will still feel a little scared when it happens.
