Treat or Trick?

To some, Halloween is about the candy, costumes and water balloons.  To others, it's the Pagan Holiday of All Hallows Eve, which history poorly misunderstood, and then misrepresented as All Saints Day.

Traditional (and originally), it is the Celtic Holiday Samhian or Late Harvest , and represents the Celtic New Year.  So being a half drop Irish, and having a good pint of Celtic blood in me, I think it would be a lovely day for a Guinness!

Happy New Year!

T.S. No, I did not Wiki this...I'm here all week!
T.T.S. TS stands for Toe.Spit, which is a spoonerism of Post Script...again, I'm here all week!

Agree with tp, very creative indeed, you are definitely smoking from the tree of knowledge .. lol

On the sock post - cool, humorous indeed.

On the financial post - dude, i'm so with you on this one, joburg socialisms are awesome but costly but fucking awesome, its a difficult one, is the overspending worth it, but than what do you do when you don't spend ... people talk of this phenomenon called saving, i have not yet came into contact with this being but apparently it helps one? Lets see how it goes.

Happy Halloween and will definitely treat myself tomany a pint.

Trickkkk!! when we lived in Botswana my dad said trick to some of his students and they egged our house. I have a feeling you can come up with something much naughtier.

happy halloween!

Ches said...

VLS...good good, pints are good!

Saving needs a purpose. You can't save too long and die one day and go 'shit, I should have spent it!'

So save big and short then spending having a jol...then do it again. Lend yourself money to pay yourself back!

Ches said...

PO...Ha ha, we'll have to see. You lived in Bots? Don't think you've mentioned that!

VLS said...

the problem is always having a jol

i do think that one day i will meet this saving though, hopefully that one day be sooner rather than later.

Or i can always hope for the lotto, tata ma chance, tata ma millions.

Ches said...

The lotto's there to win...do it!

VLS said...

the lotto = cash cow = some people always getting rich = me remaining the same = others getting great bonuses = me still remaining the same = the state getting rich = makes no difference how rich the state gets i still pay more on the electricity bill and water is going up = less money to party <> healthy but today = Friday so why care!

Ches said...

equals exactly!
