Happy Halloween

October 31, 2007

Halloween is descended from Samhain, an ancient Gaelic harvest festival. It was brought to the United States by Irish immigrants fleeing the potato famine and English imperialism. Poor children would beg at the houses of the rich and vandalize those whose handouts were unsatisfactory. Tonight celebrate Halloween the ancient way: eat well and cause trouble.
