According to Moonalice legend, the tribe celebrated the coming of spring each year with a day of spiritual awakening and hemp products. The highest of high holy days in the Moonalice calendar. In ancient times, the celebration began at dawn on April 20 and lasted as long as the participants could remain standing. In modern times, the 420 celebration typically features live music. In addition, true believers observe daily rituals without music, such as a collective inhaling of breath at 4:20pm.
Look at today’s date. Look at the numbers … April 20, 2008. 4–20-08. 04-20-2008. Do you see the patterns? 4x2=8. 4+2+2=8. 4-squared divided by 2=8. There’s some kind of conspiracy at work here. Probably related to the Bermuda Triangle or the disappearance of Judge Crater.
