All Hallows Eve 2006

Lydia's daycare is celebrating its "Fall Festival" today, no doubt in response to those who fear the infliction of religion; the Winter Festival's in a couple months. History, origins, costume ideas and links, news, Christian perspective on Halloween "in response to email castigating for glorifying evil :-)", and jokes such as:
Q. Why do demons and ghouls hang out together?
A. Because demons are a ghoul's best friend!

Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter. - Carol Bishop Hipps (Stolen from a friend)

There must be 30 Ways To Eat a Pumpkin. Ah, a new Paul Simon song, no doubt. And speaking of which - Paul's 65th birthday this month went unmentioned on this page.

So did Sting's 55th birthday. Here's a fun story about the FIRST time Sting met Edin Karamazov, the lute player from Sarajevo, 12 years ago at a circus. You fans of Studio 60 may recognize Karamazov from the episode featuring Sting (and Lauren Graham).

Facts for Halloween from the Census BOO-reau.

I thought about handing out candy to the trick or treaters las tnight, but there I was in Target when I thought why should I in good conscoius hand out candies that are really harmful to kids and our balloning obesiety epidemic (a crowd I'm currently trying to get out of).

So what can I hand out? Fruit? No that ALWAYS gets tossed out. Comics, um comics are expensive these days. Pennies, please, what kid wants a penny? How about Jack Chick tracts?! So I decided not to hand out anything last night.
