Oh America, behold your best holiday!
The one with the creepiest vibe and the most bizarre message! Never mind the additive laden candy, the plastic crap and the inappropriate costumes, you still have my vote.
A night when children and adults can run around as ghouls, monsters, animals, historical figures and threaten strangers lest they give them sweet stuffs, reminds me off the Saturnalia and other pagan traditions when the rules of ordinary days are a little suspended, a little strange...
I could wax lyrical about All Saint's Day, Day Of The Dead, Samhain, but suffice to say that the veil between the world's is the thinnest today and I gots to get the fire going, the pumpkin soup on the stove and bake some bread, before handing out some choice sugar to the delighted children and their terrified parents of the neighborhood.
