Happy Hallowe'en!!!

Happy Halloween!!! Even though I would LOVE to celebrate Halloween today, I can’t ‘cause of work, work, and work. And whatever free time that I may have today, well, I think I should take it to rest. ‘Cause my squeaking carcass of a body ain’t the same like before. Now that’s a scary thought for this Halloween. But I was just wondering, how the heck did this cool festivity come about and why in God’s sweet name are we celebrating pumpkin cannibalism and demonizing small innocent children? Here’s a gist about Halloween from Wikipedia:

"The term Halloween (and its alternative rendering Hallowe'en) is shortened from All-hallow-even, as it is the eve of "All Hallows' Day", also which is now known as All Saints' Day. It was a day of religious festivities in various northern European Pagan traditions, until Popes Gregory III and Gregory IV moved the old Christian feast of All Saints' Day from May 13 to November 1. In the ninth century, the Church measured the day as starting at sunset, in accordance with the Florentine calendar. Although All Saints' Day is now considered to occur one day after Halloween, the two holidays were, at that time, celebrated on the same day. Liturgically, the Church traditionally celebrated that day as the Vigil of All Saints, and, until 1970, a day of fasting as well. Like other vigils, it was celebrated on the previous day if it fell on a Sunday, although secular celebrations of the holiday remained on the 31st. The Vigil was suppressed in 1955, but was later restored in the post-Vatican II calendar. Many European cultural traditions, in particular Celtic cultures, hold that Halloween is one of the liminal times of the year when spirits can make contact with the physical world, and when magic is most potent (according to, for example, Catalan mythology about witches and Irish tales of the Sídhe).”

Whoaaaaa. That was intense. Just kinda scared that a real ghost pops out and shit goes out the window. Anyway, for those of you with Halloween costumes or masks, very wicked of you to have them. But for those of you that do not, well, be afraid not, ‘cause I just got the quick-fire solution for you: printable masks!!! Yes, no costume, no matter as long as you are covered with a mask of Freddy Kruger. Just attach some kitchen knifes to your hand and wear a red/green striped sweater and your are all set to make mash potato with the shit left behind by freaked out kids using your kitchen knives. I'm kidding, I'm just in the mood ;) Anyway, check out the masks with the below links:
