Catholic common sense on Halloween
A story from a Russian Orthodox monk:
A few years ago 2 fathers came to my apartment with their little boys (they were not dressed as monsters). When they saw my long beard, I could tell by the looks in their eyes who they thought I was. I gave them some candy, and as they walked to their fathers, I said, "See you at Christmas. Hoo, hoo, hoo!" The looks in their eyes still brighten me whenever things try to get me down.
I've got the beard for it so maybe, Deo volente, I'll be doing that in 20 years. 'HO, ho, ho, ho, ho!'

I plug in the white Christmas lights in the eight-foot windows of my Edwardian living room and give Reese's Peanut Butter Cups to the kiddies.

С праздником наступающим - уже наступил.
