Flogsta Scream

Every night in Flogsta Sweden you can hear people screaming their heads off.

Wikipedia says:

Every evening at 10 p.m. the "Flogsta scream" may be heard, when students scream collectively from windows, balconies and roof tops. There is controversy over how the tradition started. Some locals say it was simply a stress reliever, which started during exam times and then became a daily occurrence. Others say it started in remembrance of a student who committed suicide in the 1970s.

What in the goddamn hell?!? Every single night? That's so weird. And a little bit funny, and a little bit creepy.

Interesting coincidence (or not): Primal (scream) Therapy was introduced and became somewhat popular in the 70's. Might be some connection there.
