Bob, I like the pumpkin in the logo. That's pretty cool!

Especially interesting for the amazingly large part of the world that doesn't recognize this event ;) In my country 1st of November is called "zaduszki": and it's a whole lot more "serious" than Halloween. It's a *real* shame that the latter gets imported here without respect for local traditions. But lots of people have a sort of "american fetish", fueled in part by our experiences with Soviets, I think...

Rant mode off ;)

Oh, all Hallows Eve is very serious. The fact that most people don't know that is beside the point.

And, as my wife insists that I point out, All Saints Day (Nov. 1st) is equally so.

The pumpkin is great. :)

I bet anyone who wishes to create a nice graphic for their own favorite $DAY would have a chance at having it used, too.

Very nice, not at all typical. Someone does good art.

Oh, and as far as "not taking it seriously", here in darkest North Carolina, there are lots of folks who don't cotton to that agrandizing of the Devil's work in ghosts and goblins and witches and all, so they get together on Oct. 31 and pray vigorously for those of us heathens who "celebrate" such evil and sin.

They also put up signs a couple years ago when Halloween would have been on Sunday, saying, "[this development's] Children will be celebrating Halloween on Saturday, Oct. 30th!"

What they should do is hand out sample-sized toothpaste, but they don't understand that it is _THEY_ who are the superstitious agrandizers of "evil" where everyone else is celebrating only candy and dress-up.

Typical intrusive idiots who love to run other people's lives.

Lol, it's a nice pumpkin logo. Let's take it at face value as it was intended.

The problem with any belief system (not just religious ones) comes about when people try to force it upon others. As long as they don't do that, live and let live works pretty well.

"The problem ... comes about when people try to force it upon others."

Which is when armed self defense is most essential.

The only weapon is a sharp mind. Other things are merely tools.

The Christmas lights were cool too, by the way. Now, I'll wait for the fireworks!

Don't forget Valentine's day -- heart pumping . . . . ;-)

and St. Paddy's Day -- green Beer foaming . . .. ;-D

TC, a pointer to your WishList would be perfect for that. And no map required.

TC -

I like the way you think, girl.
