Happy Samhain to All, And To All A Good Fright!
And Happy Birthday to my darling nieceling Shannie (who as a little girl thought that people dressed up every year in honor of her natal day, and who's to say they didn't)!
I will spend the night as I always do, just quietly at home with Jim, and whoever else wishes to drop by. I do a little ritual just to set the table, as it were, then kick back. The menu is usually pork with home-fried potatoes and chopped onions, all nice and brown, an apple turnover or soda bread or a scone, a hunk of Cheddar and some apple cider. The guests seem to like it.
This year, sadly, I also expect two of my best friends in the whole world: David Walley, who died in 2006, and Susie Donoghue, who died in March.
And since this is the Celtic New Year's Eve, and time to consider and take stock, I want to thank you all for making Blogspot so much fun for me this past year. Let's keep it going.
So, leave something out for your own guests, and put a candle in the window and let it burn till dawn, so they know where to come, and have a lovely and blessed New Year.
