That Special Time of Year....

Yes, it's that special time of year again-- the season for carving pumpkins, getting sick on candy, and wearing pointy little hats.

Sadly, many conservatives have tried to ban Hallowe'en recently, alleging that it teaches little children to become witches, cast spells, worship Satan and become demonically posessed. But everyone knows that little children are already demonically possessed, so I really don't know what the problem is.

As for myself, although I occasionally do cast a mysterious spell on the various men around me, I only worship Satan when it is convenient. It's not like the everyday trials and tribulations of such a fashionable young lady require the constant intervention of Beelzebub. Only very special occasions will find me hopping daintily onto my broom to meet with my coven: tax season, November elections, stressful work deadlines, etc. And my associates are really quite charming; we usually just meet for tea, and only cast spells when absolutely necessary.

We're actually considering applying for a special non-profit tax status and we just elected a Treasurer. It's all really quite respectable and organized. You can see us at various fundraisers throughout the year (Satanists for Affordable Housing, Save the Bats, and PETA) and we also do Adopt-A-Highway now, in addition to our annual Bake Sale and Witch's Sabbath.

Someday soon we hope to have a clubhouse!

Good luck on the clubhouse. Every coven needs a nice place to just hang out.

I love the satirical tone, L. You really do that well - unless the tone is not - er, never mind.

I adore the wit of your posts, as you know by know. This year's boiling caudlron is simmmering as I type...too bad it can't work magic to let truly cast the type of spells that would make a differenc in our world.

All that seriousness aside, a holiday filled with costumes, kids, and that alltime essentail fortifying Food GROUP, aka chocolate, is here. I'm sans chocolate for now, so as I melt from withdrawal: Spooky, kooky, fun wishes for a Happy Halloween!

Damn conservatives, trying to ruin Halloween! Actually, damn conservatives everything.

Hope your Halloween wasn't a complete washout. I've got some candy left over if you want to visit the house and gorge yourself on chocolate. We actually had to make a candy run at 8pm after the kids cleaned out our supply, and that was limiting everyone to two pieces.

I want to wear a pointy hat but it is banned here in Texas, for some reason. I think it is because they used to be white pointy hats back in the day when ignorance reigned. Hmm, maybe I can wear a coon-skin hat like Daniel Boone did... and attend your PETA party. What fun!
