Oh... I was about to post about this. I was trying to take a screenshot first. (I actually died taking this screenshot...)
Yep I thinks it's because of Halloween, because it started right after 12pm.
5 seconds later I turned around and a creeper ended my life both in game and in real life.

"There is a world we cannot see, a world where all our imagination, dreams and fantasies lay true with no limitations and endless freedom. It is there as we speak, and it will always be there. Our world will never be able to connect to the other, but we will know that it is there, beyond this world. Those who you have lost in this world is there, and you will meet them when you are no longer part of our current world."
