Happy Halloween!

Tomorrow night is the Night of the Veil, when the worlds of the living and the dead overlap and the spirits of our ancestors return. Celebrated throughout the world in various cultures, under various names, this night is the time for inward reflection, to stare into the bonfire and dance and dream. Or, a night to dress up in a funny suit and eat lots of candy, your choice. Tonight, some friends and I are celebrating a tad early. We're going out to a Goth Club to celebrate. I'm dressing up like the Devil.

Here's what Wikipedia has to say about Halloween, the Mexican Day of the Dead and the original Pagan celebration, Samhain.

Don't forget to leave something out for the Wee Folk.
