Magic Broom Trick

Have you ever heard of a broom standing completely on its own? My friend sent me a picture mail and text the other night showing her broom standing in the middle of her kitchen floor. She was amazed and said I needed to try it myself. We got our broom and took it into our foyer. At first, it just fell over when we tried to stand it. But, after several attempts, my son got it to stand on its own. This is the actual picture of our broom - standing completely on its own.



I tried to google it and figure out how this works. Some say it has something to do with the way the planets are aligned at a given time. Others said it was related to barometric pressure. I really have no idea how it works, but, we thought it was pretty cool. The broom stood all by itself for about 30 minutes, then it just fell (scaring us half to pieces). Have you ever heard of this? Ever tried it? If you do, let me know if it works for you, too.

Happy Halloween! Everyone have a safe and fun night.
