Beware the monsters that hide in the shadows or lurk under the bed. They are waiting to grab and munch on unsuspecting victims. In reality, science has debunked many superstitions and the belief in monsters. It’s all mere imagination, based on our primal fears. There is science behind everything in our universe, even Halloween.
