Happy Halloween/All Souls/Samhain!
This is one of my favorite holidays. I mean, it's fall, and it's a day where you can dress up, _and_ it's all about the supernatural? And that's even before you add in the candy. I mean, really!
Break out the chocolate, the plastic fangs (or in my case, the fishnets), and read Neil Gaiman's piece in the New York Times about Halloween, witches, and ghosts in the machines.
