In the early morning of January 19, Poe's birthdate, a bottle of cognac and 3 roses are left on Poe's grave by the mysterious "Poe Toaster." There is some doubt that the tradition began in 1949.The misconception seems to be that the Poe Toaster visited Poe's grave, but 'Toast' actually visited Poe's original gravesite (the one on the Poe plot with the raven) where Poe's remains were from 1849 until 1875. Poe's current gravesite is much too public for the Toaster.
