"We are afraid we are under a spell because we didn't offer any traditional dancing and music to the spirits on the opening day this year," said school's principal.

"But we have just offered fruits, boiled chickens and wine to the spirits today, and we hope the students will get better and the spirits will take care of us," said the headmaster.
Undoubtedly his charges will continue to believe in nonsense, then.
