    they don't have Halloween?

    Somehow "scary" just doesn't go with Christmas. (Aside from the bills of course...)

      but we had Walpurgisnacht - the night of the witches, April 30th. I grew up not too far from Mt. Brocken, and we'd dress up as witches and run to houses for treats or we'd "curse" the house. At midnight, we'd burn our witch costumes in bonfires and feast on the treats we'd been given.  Then the next day, we'd all picnic to celebrate the coming of summer.

      All knowledge is worth having. Check out OctopodiCon to support steampunk learning and fun. Also, on DKos, check out the Itzl Alert Network.
