Some folks hate Halloween. Witches and goblins and the devil, etc.
But ever since Fantasy Fest 1995, when I danced on the tropical oddical streets of Key West until the sun rose over the Atlantic Ocean, I've loved October 31st.
Fantasy Fest theme that year was movies and I went as Carmen Miranda. No, I don't know why. I was the only female Carmen in Key West. Which would have been fine except that the others were better looking. Especially the troupe of Swedish blonde six-footers with towering head-dresses.
Any holiday that gives you an excuse to laugh and dance into dawn gets my vote.
Hope yours is good magic.
