Halloween: Scary Times in Bates Suits!
So I love Halloween more then Christmas or any other day. Its origins are likely Celtic in nature, based on the celebration of Samhain , or Summers End festival. And truly Halloween marks the end of the long fun lazy days of being outside here in Canada, to the long, cold, inside nights of winter. It is one of the last few events that thrusts adventurers into the cold night to seek out parties and express their inner selves. The
holiday has become a real North American adventure, combining rituals
and celebrations from Latin American Day of the Dead festivities to
European sacrificial traditions and Gothic Literature!
The Return of the Archons where the Red Hour strikes and people go wild having fun, whilst their regular lives are sedate and tame and living in an authoritarian state under the all watching eye of Landrau!
Good gracious I love Halloween. This year the wife went as Amy Winehouse, and I pulled out an excellent old school Bates racing suit my size, with classic tricolours styling. Dead biker is always a favourite theme.
