Today is All Hallow's Eve, or Samhain if you will. It is the Pagan New Year an ancient feast day, which over the past few decades has become celebrated anew in the public consciousness.
Whether you believe that it is the day when the veil between the living and the dead is at its thinnest, whether you believe (like I do) that it is the day that marks the beginning of the winter months and is a feastday to say goodbye to the days of summer, or whether it is just a day when your kids dress up as goblins and roam the streets in search of sweeties, it is a day that is hard to ignore. And as it is at least vaguely on-topic to some of what we study here at the CFZ, we have gone the whole hog on the bloggo to celebrate it. There are stories, poems, fact and fiction; lots of Good Stuff.
Corinna has got into the macabre mood over on her blog as well with two postings:
Five senses of the Moor at Midnight
And normal service (in so much as the CFZ bloggo can ever be called normal) will be resumed tomorrow.
