Happy Halloween

Today is a very religious day on the Catholic calender. Instead of one saint per day like the other religious holidays. Today we celebrate ALL of them.

Etymology: short for All Hallow Even (All Saints’ Eve)

I’ll pick a few:

GENESIUS of Rome: Patronage: actors, attorneys, barristers, clowns, comedians, comediennes, comics, converts, dancers, epilepsy, epileptics, lawyers, musicians, printers, stenographers, torture victims

Vitus:
Patronage: actors; against animal attacks; against dog bites; against lightning; against oversleeping; against storms; against wild beasts, comedians; comediennes; Czechoslovakia; dancers; dog bites; dogs; epilepsy; epileptics; Forio, Italy; lightning; oversleeping; Prague, Czech Republic; rheumatic chorea; Saint Vitus Dance; snake bites; storms; Vacha, Germany; Zeven, Germany

But enough of 4th Century Roman murder victims that are now the saints of comedians AND epileptics.

Lets get down to the real meaning of this holiday.

    Ah, maybe I’m a little out of place for suggesting it, but shouldn’t we have a day for celebrating the living? I know we have Mardi Gras(or did) but I was thinking about something that did not involve urinating.

    They all involve urinating in one way or another.

    Mardi Gras is about urinating on oneself while standing in line to get a po-boy at 4 in the morning while youre actually in the lobby of your hotel. Good times.

    I noticed your classification labels. There’s a God of Irony? That is so cool! Is he/she/it the one in charge of all the poetic justice? That should be one busy God these days.

    God of Irony: The One responsible for Dr. Graves’ namesake disease not being fatal and the King of Rock and Roll dying while on the ‘thrown’.
