As the Christmas season rapidly approaches, more and more people have been reporting odd things happening around their homes.
One reader tells the Humbug News about little footprints found on the frosting of a cake she had made the night before.
A well-known collector says that she has been finding tinsel on the living room floor. This would not seem odd except that she hasn't even thought about putting up the tree yet.
We even had one person call with a story about finding little mustaches drawn on all of their postage stamps.
So it appears that the mischief has started. Plus, aside from a large increase in the number of reports of missing keys, there have been sitings of green and yellow "bugs" spotted leaving the scenes of many of these incidents.
In any case, it's probably better to put your keys in your pocket than to place them in some tempting spot like the kitchen counter.
Just remember, Humbug mischief can strike anywhere and at anytime. Most likely it will happen when you least expect it.
Humbugs are everywhere!
