Happy Hallowe'en!

Thanks, Marsha, for giving me something to post today!

Wow, and we call Phoenix the Skinny Little Dog!

The ancient Celts felt that on All Hallow's Eve, the veil between the worlds (living world and spirit world) was thinner than any other time of the year and spirits of the departed could pass through. Since not all of these spirits were friendly, the tradition of masks and costumes came into play so the spirits couldn't tell who was who. Fire (either bonfires or in carved jack-o-lanterns) was also used to keep evil spirits at bay.

There you go. Hallowe'en explained in a paragraph.

Boo. Have a great day and many happy tricks and treats to all!
