Hallowe’en

November 5, 2009

Hope everyone had an awesome Hallowe’een. A few of my friends and I went on a haunted walk in downtown Ottawa, and I learned a couple of facts that I might have been better off not knowing. And I’ll share some with you! How generous, right? One thing that I never knew before was that when Ottawa (or Bytown) was first being settled, what is now the downtown area was used as a huge cemetery with massive graves dug for those with diseases like cholera. As recently as 40 years ago when the National Arts Centre (NAC) was built bodies had been found emerging in the rain and also where they were to lay the foundation of the new building. The solution was to lay down more dirt and to put a huge stone gazeebo over top. PHEW.
