All Hallowed Evening

Bonus Cat Blogging

Jack o' lanternWhether you celebrate Celtic New Year’s Eve [Samhain], the evening before All Saints Day [Halloween], or the anniversary of the posting of Martin Luther’s Ninety-Five Theses in 1517 [Reformation Day], have a happy one.

Wikipedia does its normally thorough job of covering all of the bases on the holidays that share October 31st.

These are my remembrances of a traditional American Halloween.

Locally we are having preemptive lawn drowning to prevent people at the ‘Autumn Festival’ from parking on our grass.

Love the remembrances Bryan…we had neighbors who met us with those home made cookies tied up in a bag, donuts, fried cakes, candied apples and popcorn balls as well. And our neighborhood allowed us to go out the night before on what we called Beggars Night. Homemade costumes and a town parade and prizes to follow for the most imaginative given out on the small town movie theater stage.

New York, especially small town New York, was better suited to Halloween than anywhere today. I felt bad for the children going to the “Harvest Festival” at the church across the road. They weren’t ready for temperatures in the 40’s.

every year I consider blowing up that picture and mounting it on foam board in my front yard for Halloween.

They work for me, but that doesn’t mean much for everyone else 😉

You have that image somewhere and manipulated the hell out of it when I first posted it. Who would have thought that critters with blue eyes could look so evil 😈
