Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is kept within a 2m x 2m x 3m drywall chamber, which is regulated with at least 60% air humidity and a temperature of 20 degrees Celsius or more to encourage mold growth. Mandatory inspections for damage on the chamber are to be executed the day before and after the first day of a lunar month.
Neglecting containment procedures may result in an apparition of eight croissants on plates within a town or city, typically ones in Austria and Nevada. These croissants are to be labeled as SCP-XXXX-1. The chamber containing SCP-XXXX would be damaged in the event of an SCP-XXXX-1 appearance.
The chamber is to be remodeled with drywall, and required air qualities are to be regulated before the next lunar month.
Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are to be placed inside SCP-XXXX, and SCP-XXXX is to be properly closed and kept under strict surveillance until the next lunar month in which they will disappear. Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are not to be consumed as a precaution.
Interviews are to be conducted on those who directly receive an instance of SCP-XXXX-1. Quantitative data is to be noted, as some quantitative data from previous interviews have pointed to future dates in which anomalous events have occurred.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an 8-count croissant box that has no printed logo but shows a similar appearance to that of a normal [REDACTED]™ croissant box. SCP-XXXX has been confirmed to be made out of ordinary cardboard, even though SCP-XXXX is not affected by mold.
SCP-XXXX only portrays anomalous behavior on the first day of a lunar month, in which the box would be found open. Video recordings confirm that SCP-XXXX opens by itself, and no physical items are visible inside or coming out of SCP-XXXX. However, if instances of SCP-XXXX-1 were to occur, Video surveillance would capture a bright light coming from the inside of SCP-XXXX as it opened. Eight seconds after SCP-XXXX is opened, the light would abruptly cease, and at the same time damage would be inflicted upon the chamber containing SCP-XXXX, exposing it to outside air. During the eight seconds in which SCP-XXXX emits light, temperatures within the chamber containing SCP-XXXX would suddenly drop to approximately 1.6 degrees Celsius and humidity levels would drop to 35%, ceasing mold growth. Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 would appear from 0 to 8 minutes after this event.
Instances of SCP-XXXX-1 would seemingly disappear the next lunar month if they are placed inside SCP-XXXX, and if SCP-XXXX is closed. All individuals who directly receive an instance of SCP-XXXX-1 eventually forget the instance, or convince themselves that the instance was a dream, if instances of SCP-XXXX-1 cease occurring for at least three lunar months.
Because of the placement patterns of instances of SCP-XXXX-1, instances of SCP-XXXX-1 are suspected to be outlining landing destinations for an unknown object. Supposed alien activity recorded in the same year that SCP-XXXX's anomalous effects were discovered in supports this theory. However, why the landing areas are occasionally repositioned away from Austria or why Austria is the most commonly marked country is unknown.
SCP-XXXX was discovered in September 1952 in Vienna, Austria. Several residents reported finding small plates on their doorsteps, containing croissants. As several months past, the appearances were found to occur in a pattern; the croissants would appear on the first day of a lunar month, and would only appear on the doorsteps of eight specific residents at the time. On a map, plotting the residents' houses would result in a near perfect octagon. An investigation was executed on September, in 1952. SCP-XXXX was found in the center of the octagon on the map and was confirmed to be the origin of the croissants.

Addendum: On the date of September 11, 1952, an investigation was executed concerning strange appearances of pastries on the doorsteps of eight residents in the town of Vienna, Austria. Two out of eight residents accepted interviewing. Interviews are translated from German to English.

Interview 1: The following is a recording of an interview with resident Miriam Weber, age 53, of Vienna, Austria.

Dr. Marshall: When did these appearances of croissants start occurring?

Mrs. Weber: Well, I don't remember the exact date. But it was probably around five months ago.

Dr. Marshall: How many have you received so far?

Mrs. Weber: I have received Six, Including the one today.

Dr. Marshall: When the appearances occur, do you feel strange in any way? Maybe a headache?

Mrs. Weber: No, not at all, just very confused. I have asked my neighbors if they have been leaving the croissants on my doorstep, but all of them said no.

Dr. Marshall: Have you eaten any of the croissants? If you have, could you perhaps tell us what it tasted like and how you felt?

Mrs. Weber: Yes, I have eaten all but the first, and they tasted wonderful.

Dr. Marshall: Do you have any suspicions as to where the croissants are coming from?

Mrs. Weber: Eight center. I don't have any, i'm sorry. Maybe you can ask me another time.

Dr. Marshall: Okay. Well, thank you, that's all we need for now, ma'am.

Additional Notes: When asked about the origin of the croissants, Miriam Weber paused before speaking, appearing insecure but answering confidently, like she had rehearsed her words.

Interview 2: The following is a recording of an interview with resident Oliver Heilig, age 53, of Vienna, Austria.

Dr. Marshall: When did these appearances start occurring for you?

Mr. Heilig: Uh, maybe about six months ago? Five months? I've received six in total so far, that includes today's.

Dr. Marshall: Do you feel anything strange, like maybe a headache when these appearances occur?

Mr. Heilig: No, just slightly confused.

Dr. Marshall: Have you eaten any of the croissants?

Mr. Heilig: Yes, sir, all of them. They're amazing!

Dr. Marshall: Were you able to see the croissants appear? Were you able to see if anyone was putting the croissants on your doorstep? If not, do you have any suspicions as to who is giving you croissants?

Mr. Heilig: Eight center. I don't have any, I'm sorry. Maybe you can ask me another time.

Dr. Marshall: …Okay, thank you.

Additional Notes: Oliver Heilig had a similar reaction when asked about the croissant origin, acting as if being threatened.

Exactly 53 years after the end of the interviewing, the 9/11 events occurred. The ages of those interviewed correlated to the mentioned number, and their residences were also 53 years old. Before the 9/11 events, 5 instances of SCP-XXXX-1 rather than 8 were confirmed in the city of Manhattan, New York.
