Greetings to all folks near and far.
For all who had to face Hurricane Sandy, my prayers and thoughts are with you. The destruction left by the storm is devastating -- it will take a lot of work and support from as many people as possible. Please contact your local Red Cross center to find out how you can help.
This is the night to watch out for all those ghosties, goblins, and all things that we love to be spooked by. Be safe tonight if you take your children out trick-or-treating. And .... keep a watch over your shoulder.
If you do not observe the Halloween holiday, there is a forum discussion at our Moms site http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/790149/Re_We_don_t_celebrate_Hallowee#Post790149 with a link to an excellent article by the Moms Editor, Lisa Pinkus.
Here is my latest article from the Folklore and Mythology site at BellaOnline.com.
