Chives were promoted as a cure for melancholy during the Middle Ages. They were believed to drive away evil spirits, and for this reason, they were promoted very strongly at Halloween as a protection and safeguard against demons and ghosts.
National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day – when thousands of pounds of unused and potentially addictive medications and other substances are removed from homes around the United States – will be on Oct. 26.
The aim of the event is to help reduce the number of teens and adults who are abusing prescription medicines.
The event is held twice each year and helps raise awareness of the permanent prescription-drug-disposal boxes that have been established around the nation.
