It's spooky time again! I love Halloween. I don't care for the spook houses or slasher movies.

Classical inaccuracies. There's quite a difference in secular and religious holiday observances.
BTW Just so you know, the dates on those "holidays" actually vary by the astrological times they fall, just like "Easter" does.
Samhain: Sun is at 15 Scorpio
Yule: Sun is at 1 Capricorn
Imbolc: Sun is at 15 Aquarius
Ostara: Sun is at 1 Aries
Beltaine: Sun is at 15 Taurus
Litha: Sun is at 1 Cancer
Lammas: Sun is at 15 Leo
Mabon: Sun is at 1 Libra
