    You're a couple of years out of date with this one. In 2008 a blogger in India, in order to attract as many hits as possible to his blog, started spreading some ****-and-bull story about the Sun remaining in the sky for 36 hours on October 17th. I've had to delve into my Hoaxwatch files to locate this one, so I may as well reiterate all of the list by way of a warning to people not to believe everything they find on the internet.

    Hoaxwatch Update

    Up next:

    Newspaper publishers will find something to put on their front page, as they do every day. So in that sense there will be something special about the day.

    But I don't think it will be notably different from any other front page this year.
