* The Poe Toaster commemorates the birthday of Edgar Allan Poe at his grave Baltimore, originated with a single unidentified individual who appeared at the grave of Poe every year for decades. The Poe Toaster the nickname given to the mysterious person (or two persons in succession, possibly father and son) who, from about 1949 until 2009, who paid an annual tribute to American author Edgar Allan Poe's grave marker in Baltimore, Maryland in the early hours of January 19, Poe's birthday. The Poe Toaster was dressed in black with a wide-brimmed hat and white scarf. The Toaster would leave three roses and a partially-filled bottle of French cognac, then disappear into the night with rare sightings and no photographs.
According to notes and reports, the original Toaster visited the tomb from 1949 until his death in 1998, after which the tradition was passed on to what may call the original toaster's "son" . In 2006 an unsuccessful attempt was made by several onlookers to capture and identify him. No Toaster has appeared since 2009. .

Toast of The Day

 "Fill with mingled cream and amber,
I will drain that glass again.
Such hilarious visions clamber
Through the chamber of my brain.
Quaintest thoughts, queerest fancies
Come to life and fade away.
What care I how time advances;
I am drinking ale today."

- Edgar Allen Poe (born Edgar Poe) (January 19th, 1809 – October 7th, 1849), an American author and poet.
