-According to ancient Celtic belief, it is believed to be bad luck if you allow a fire to burnout on Halloween.
-Bobbing for apples is a traditional game played by young people on Halloween. Historically, the first person to bite into an apple would be the first to marry. The apple is a symbol of fertility. Hence, it's symbolic significance in this ritualistic past time.
-John Keats 1795
-Vanilla Ice 1968

And the name 'Assia Wevill' contains all but one letter, the 'y', in the name 'Sylvia' ,which signifies a deep psychic connection.between these two women. In fact, Assia also committed suicide, while still living with Ted Hughes just 6 years after Sylvia's. Eerily, she mimicked Plath's death and stuck her head into a gas oven, as well. Tragically and heartbreakingly, Assia murdered her 6 year old daughter before taking her own life. And, if that weren't enough to boggle the mind and crack the heart, Plath's son, Nicolas, hanged himself at age 47.
The epitaph I quoted for Sylvia Plath is, in fact, the epitaph that John Keats wrote for himself and which appears on his gravestone. John Keats died from tuberculosis at age 24. In that both poets died at so young an age, the inscription seemed appropriate.

When I looked at her parent's and brother's numbers to see if there were any overlaps with Jon Benet's numbers, I found that her father's middle name, "Bennet", is a 6 and that his full name is an 8 which corresponds to the value of the day she died, 12/25/1996. Also, if you add the numbers of his first and last names, that's an 8 as well. Not only did Jon Benet live on 15th Street, but her address was "755", which is also an 8 which is a match for her birth month, August, the 8th month.
What does one make of these seemingly overlapping and interlacing numbers? I'm not sure. All I can say with any degree of certainty is that this little girl's name carried some very heavy freight and that the numbers 6 and 8 figured prominately in her brief, young life.

For those of you who would like to learn about the number 10, I suggest you go online to the Encyclopedia Britannica, Wikipedia and Ride the Beast (which is a religious site, but full of interesting facts about the number 10).
