#Hazelnuts in #Dublin fell from the sky

A post shared by Lingofacts (@lingofacts) on

A strange case of food falling from the sky was reported by policemen in Dublin in 1867. The men were forced to take shelter from the ‘tremendous rainfall’ of very small black oranges around half an inch in diameter, seemingly made from wood and with a ‘slight aromatic odour’. An onlooker clarified that they were actually preserved hazelnuts, but how they ended up falling from the sky is a great mystery!
