An Interesting Three Day Juxtaposition

Today is Samhain, or Halloween, if you prefer. It is also known as All Hallow's Eve.

Tonight's the night when all sorts of bugaboos are supposed to roam the land. Ghosts, ghouls, goblins and things that go bump in the night. Witches, when not running for public office in Delaware, go flying through the night sky. Zombies want to eat your brains, vampires want to drain your veins, and Republicans want to steal your soul.

Then, Monday is All Saint's Day, or All Hallows Day. This is a day of solemn celebration for Catholics and is meant to commemorate the beatified. It is a day when all that is good reign over the earth.

Tuesday is another Catholic holiday known as All Souls Day. It is also Election Day. That is of course when the forces of good enjoin in battle against the forces of Republicans evil, for the soul of the nation and the state.

It's kind of neat the way they all fit together, isn't it?
