Happy Halloween!

Its Nice day to segue slowly onto the holiday season.This is one holiday of the western calendar I love the most. Halloween. Obviously I wondered if the word "hallow" has any connections. It definitely does. Name the day after halloween when the heathen (who might have been scared to death the day before due to some random thing) were en masse allowed into the church? It used to be called Hallowmas (yeah! much like xmas) but officially called as "All Saints Day". I like these "eve" (fun) followed by serious things (mas). Mardi Gras marks the celebration followed by Ash Wednesday kinds, you get it na. I shall go carve turnips.
