They appeared on Christmas morning in a barley field in Texcoco, Mexico – crop circles covering about seven hectare or over 17 acres. Local residents reported seeing unusual bright lights in the overcast sky the night before. Seen from above, the crop circles are made in irregular formations without the clean lines and geometric precision of most crop circles. A week later, there’s been no explanation for the formations. What could have caused this Christmas phenomenon?
Aliens? Locals who saw the bright lights over the field on Christmas Eve went to investigate and called the police to report the …
… presence of aliens in farming areas and various figures in the crops.
If it was aliens, why the lack of beauty and precision found in other crop circles? Christmas Eve partying? After all, Pope Francis did say he would welcome extraterrestrials into the church. Perhaps they made a church visit and found some wine.
As with most strange occurrences in Mexico, some were quick to pin the crop circles on chupacabras. The infamous “goat suckers” aren’t known for making crop circles and there was no blood or animal carcasses in the area, so that probably eliminates chupacabras, even artistic ones.
Of course, skeptics say it was humans, most likely partiers celebrating Christmas Eve. Why would Texcoco residents at their office Christmas parties get the sudden urge to go out stomping down barley? No more tequila nog? And why would Mexico’s federal and municipal police respond in force on Christmas morning to investigate the crop circles, joined by a group of scientists who examined the scene and took pictures? Over 2,000 people were also there looking for answers.
As of this writing, the Texcoco crop circles remain a mystery.
