Halloween. Best. Day. Ever.

Why is Halloween my favorite Holiday?


This is when the freaks of the world are accepted.
 You can embrace the unusual, the bizarre.

You get to be whoever you want to be.

However, I challenge you to 
be whoever you want to be every day.
Why not?


Celebrate Halloween every single day.

Some Halloween/Samhain information...

Samhain Affirmation
I am the whisper of everything unspoken. I am the wisdom carried in by the wind, and the prophecy it foretells. I hold within me the memory of all that I have ever been, and have the courage to use that knowledge rightly. I am the end. And so in death, shall I begin again. Blessed Be.
