The Dark Half of the Year

La Calavera Catrina

I think I'm special, with the Seasonal Affective Disorder... But clearly, Mama Pancha has it. Obviously, when the days shorten, it is Human Nature to think on sleep and death and nostalgia. These things make me sad...

And so Human Nature, being balanced, tends to lead us to eat sweets and play games and be silly during the hardest of times to be silly...

The Day of the Dead, All Soul's Day, Halloween, Samhain.

We are all the boogie man. I'm going to make sugar skulls and chicken and dumplings. I am going to howl at the moon and beat my drum. I am going to burn a rather large fire and be thankful that I have a child. I think I know what I'm going to be for Halloween.
