And we are welcomed w/a 2 hour late start for halloween. Well maybe it's late because you can't see barely 1 block from fog. But I like to think it's because of halloween.

My school banned costumes. If a hundred plus people still wear them, I wonder if they'll actually suspend them all. :confused:

It's okay Paulson. :)

Happy Halloween!







Hmmmm?:confused:

I have been celibrating Halloween for 45 years. And I can't think of a reason why except to wear a costume and knock on peoples doors in the evening and ask for candy!


Why do we celebrate giving candy to kids in costumes?


Anybody?

Tripleshot: Tricks, Treats and Lit Vegetables

Trick-or-treating is a recent 20th century American phenomenon, but it has roots in ancient customs. The Irish originally initiated a custom hundreds of years ago where groups of farmers would go house to house soliciting food for the village. Prosperity was promised for generous givers and threats were made against the stingy villagers.

The custom of trick-or-treating is also related to the Gaelic practice of giving cakes to the poor at Samhain or ?summer-end,? a seasonal festival that coincided with All Souls Day. They came to be called ?soul-cakes,? and in return recipients were obligated to pray for a good harvest.

I got that from here: ABC News

BoberFett: You just look downright scary, eek! ;)

Yeah, Happy Halloween! I have so many memories trick-or-treating as a kid, picking out pumpkins, and all the other great things that come with this holiday!
