It was a Dark and Stormy night....

The wind wailed like a banshee through the cedar hedge as ghost, goblins, witches, and ghouls walked the world looking for yummy treats. The pumpkin was lit from within, his ghastly grin facing whatever may brave the ringing of the bell. A happy yell of Trick or Treat, or a shriek and a giggle as the fear became unbearable, heralded their arrival.

The treats are all gone, the lights extinguished. The streets are quiet and dark. Now is the time for the Samhain bonfire and the talk of the loved ones long gone. The feast has been eaten and glasses raised, celebrations have come to an end. The world grows a little darker as the bonfire dies down and people start thinking of warm beds and loved ones still alive. The New Year has begun and life must go on.

Happy Halloween and a Blessed Samhain.
