In search of happiness...
Hey everyone, it's Sean today. Today I want to talk about urban myths. These are stories that are usually not real (but can be real) and are told in a very dramatic way. Usually the stories are passed down and embellished over time making the story even more dramatic. There are a few really popular urban myths in the world, like Nessie, Bigfoot, the Yeti, and the Chupacabra. Japan has the tsuchinoko.
But what about Sendai? Well, Sendai has the Starlight Pageant's pink light bulb. Supposedly, there is one pink light at the pageant and the people that find it will experience great happiness. A lot of couples can be seen looking for the light.
But remember, urban myths are usually not real. So what about you everyone? Is the pink light just another story or is this one of the few urban myths that are truly real?
