Yes, this is the night when supposedly this world, and the spirit world come closer for one night. For those of us of Irish ancestry, we call it Samhain. To Americans, its better known as Halloween.
I’ll be honest, I have no idea what Halloween in the US is like, I’ve never been there at that time of year. Though to be honest, in recent times, the event seems to have taken off in a similar way over here, so I guess I now have an inkling of what it must be like. Of course, that means I never got to dress up as a witch, or the like when I was young, we never celebrated it. Fireworks night, 6 days later, is a whole different matter! Of course, apart from putting on a warm coat, you never got to dress up for that!
Mind, the need to dress up today over here, was a moot point. I went out this afternoon in nothing more than a sleeved top (not sure I even needed the sleeves) and trousers, the temperature was nearly 70, at the end of October! Seriously, normally, somewhere in the 50’s would be quite good for now! Mind, we will probably pay for it very soon.
Anyway, just a quick word before I close, to a certain ghostly spirit, who is still meant to be around, haunting in Los Angeles. Jean, if you want to visit me tonight, through the ethereal barrier, dont make it too late, I’m on an 8.00 start in the morning. If however, you and me, as some suggest, are one and the same, just stick to the normal routine. 😉
The video, is an absolute 70’s gem, that I have no idea why it wasnt a bigger hit than it was. Not even sure that it was a hit in the US? I love it, just glad of the chance to slip it in here
