Edgar Allan Poe was born on January 19, 1809, which is now 206 years ago. We once looked forward to reports of the Poe Toaster, who used to delivered flowers to Poe’s grave early in the morning on his birthday every year, and drink a glass of cognac in his honor. No one ever know who the toaster was. The folks at Atlas Obscura pay their respects with a strange little tribute video to Poe and the Poe Toaster. -Thanks, Dylan!
