For an excellent overview of the Samhain festival, here is a link to the modern day practioners of the ancient Celtic Tradition, the Wiccans. It is both a short and informative treatise and I was to lazy to post the whole story here.
Last week in Frederica, Delaware, a 42 year old woman hung herself in her front yard overlooking and in plain view of a highway. Although many motorists saw her hanging body, it was not reported to authorities for hours due to it's being mistaken for a Halloween decoration.
Yesterday before the football games, I was flipping through the channels and came upon VH1's show 'I Love the 80's: In 3D'. On one segment, Elvira gave off the Biggest Boob of the Year in Review. Although she has to be approaching or over 60, there she was with the same bra-busting exposure of massive fake cleavage. I was thinking how tough this generation has it. When I was young, you only had to worry about being embarrassed when the occasional freind would have a hot mom. Now in the age of fake breasts, a young kid has to worry about offending a freind by blurting out, " Man, your Great-Grandma has some rocking Boobs." Oh well it's a sick world and Happy Halloween to all.
