On the first day of Hallowhog...

Welcome to Hallowhog 2005/2006! As I explained last year, Hallowhog is the season of holidays stretching from Halloween (October 31st) to Groundhog's Day (February 2nd.)

As Halloween draws to a close, it's time to tear down the Jack-O-Lanterns and sytrofoam tombstones and put them away until next year. Time to start getting ready for the next stops in the Hallowhog chain of holidays. For some that means The Day of the Dead (November 2nd, not November 1st), for others Guy Fawkes Day (November 5th.) For us it means flying the flag on Veterans Day (November 11th) and then getting ready for Thanksgiving (November 24th this year.) Tomorrow also brings big sales on all the leftover Halloween stuff, and the new "unofficial" start of the Christmas shopping season.

Happy First Day of Hallowhog!
