It's almost that time... The half-way point between the laughter heard from children playing during the summer season, and the gleeful cries of joy and excitement those same children make during the Christmas season. It is quieter in the middle, deadly quiet. It can't remain light and sunny all year, the darkness must rise at some point. It has begun.... in just over two weeks the darkness will over take for a night, and the quietness will end.
The sounds will not be laughter, but screams, some from fear, but most in celebration of All Hallows' Eve, the night we honour the souls of the dead. Halloween has been getting bigger and bigger with each passing year, no surprise given that with each passing year their are hundreds of thousands more souls who have passed, gone but still in various states of unrest, all looking or that one night they can once again rise and for that one night, make their presence known.
