Just wishing everyone a Happy Halloween. Probably my favorite holiday. Christmas would be, but something that should be a more sacred and religious holiday (forgetting for a moment that Christ almost certainly couldn't have been born in winter) is a tribute to conspicuous consumption and commercialism.
Halloween was never a Christian holiday, and although sacred to some, for most people it's just a fun time to dress up and decorate. We celebrated it yesterday, because it falls on Sunday this year, and we don't do non-sabbath appropriate things on Sunday.
Tonight I'm going to watch "The Real Story of Halloween:" on the History Channel. I'm sometimes dubious about what comes across the History Channel, but it should be interesting.
If I get around to it, I'll try to post a review.
