In 1898, a London newspaper wrote a bunch of articles about a gang known as “Hooley’s Gang”, they would call themselves Hooligans. Strangely, the word appeared in San Francisco and New York at the same time. But no one ever named Hooley was found, it was presumed that Hooley was an Irish reference for Rowdy, Wild.
Other sources claim the word originated from another criminal named Patrick Hoolihan. He was a bouncer and a thief in London, borough of Southwark. Few other theories claim that it was an Irish family in the borough of Southwark, they were known as the Hoolihans and were very wild. And the other other theories suggest just that the word houlie, Irish, is the meaning of wild and hooligan comes from that.
In pious New England which was during the 1880s, the church were furious with local shops selling ice creams in Sundays. Which was suppose to be the lord’s day, the enjoyments overshadowed the lord’s pain that we were to suppose. The church banned the treat for sundays. So sellers, decided to keep everything same from the ice cream but just change the name.. to sunday. The name was a marketing scheme which referred to Sunday the lord’s day but not the lord’s name. So since then the treat caught on and became popular.
Though at the time the two treats had no difference other than the name, now they do. Sundae’s are like a cocktail, just the cream and toppings, no cone unlike the Ice Cream, which is often in a cone.
If you have ever seen a soldier’s funeral, the military way, which is very honorable. There will always be a riderless horse but with a saddle on it’s back. If nobody is going to ride it then why put a saddle on it? And why is there a horse in a ceremony anyway? It came from an ancient Roman practice, a soldier and his horse were trained to fight as one, they would go through so many battles and be together for years. If the soldier would die, the Romans thought the horse should follow it’s master. The horse would be there in the funeral but not as showing, but to be actually buried with the soldier. The two would go into another journey in the afterlife. Today, the practice isn’t still in use, the horse is still there as a symbolic representation of honor, courage, they don’t actually kill or bury the horse alive.
