The Chant

Literature teacher Lindsay Theaker remembers the craze leading up to New Year’s Eve in 1999, eventually culminating in a relatively peaceful new year that avoided major disaster and apocalypse. “I remember distinctly that my parents unplugged all the electronics in the house and they were super panicked about the date setting on the computer which only went to 1999, and they were super freaked out about what would happen at midnight. I remember thinking it felt silly, but we went along with it, and they were totally fine,” Theaker said.
