Friday, May 29, 2015. BMG: In an interview with Belize Media Group this morning, Principal Sadie Asevedo of Holy Angels Primary School in Stann Creek District says that she finds the allegations on social media that her school is participating in the spooky game of “Charlie Charlie” extremely disturbing.
“There were several students at the school who wanted to practice this game and we dealt with the situation immediately,” Ms. Asevedo told us. “There were no bags floating in the air and neither did the parents were called to pick up the children,” she added when asked if it was true that the students were involved in the Ouija board-like game.
The Charlie Charlie Challenge is a game that uses pencils and a sheet of paper to call a mysterious demon who spookily moves the pencils, if you believe in that sort of thing.
The game is simple and involves drawing a grid on a piece of paper with “Yes and “No” in the boxes, balance one pencil on top of another in the shape of a cross and asking something along the lines of Charlie, Charlie are you here?” or Charlie, Charlie can we play?” Then watch as the pencils move.
So why the pencils move? It moves because of the supernatural-seeming occurence to gravity and the awkward positioning of some pencils. Thus, it is not a demon.
Holy Angels Primary School is having its annual May fair tomorrow, Saturday May 30th 2015, and they are hoping that the Charlie Charlie allegations will not affect the fair.
