In case you didn’t know, it’s October 1st...well, it just turned October here, so I'm damn well posting this! A lovely new month is beginning, where the days get shorter, the leaves start to turn, the wind gets crisper and it all ends with one glorious night of dressing up as something suitably scary and terrifying the beejesus out of each other.

In case you didn’t know, Hallowe’en has its origins in a Celtic Pagan festival. Don’t worry, I’m not gonna give you a history lesson or anything, but have a look at the Wikipedia entry for some details. What’s worth noting, however, is that Hallowe’en (or Oíche Shamhna) originated in Ireland, and we Irish invented the tradition of dressing up (to scare away the evil spirits, witches and devils that freely walk the earth, and are at their most powerful, on that night) and trick-or-treating (traditionally, people went door to door looking for offerings that warded off bad luck).

Oh yeah *haws on fingernails and polishes them* the Irish rock so goddamn hard.

Anyway, I was thinking, seeing as how it’s not only the month of Hallowe’en, but also the one were we welcome our Winchester boys back with groping open arms, it would be pretty cool to hear all your ghost/brush with the supernatural/down right terrifying stories to celebrate! What’s more fun then being scared shitless, I ask you? Nothing, that’s what.

So, have you had an encounter with a spirit where you wished you had the boys there fully locked and loaded (that’s the saltguns, you dirty thing)? Or maybe even a nice experience with the other world? Any local legends or scary sightings? Well come on in and tell me all about it! My mind (and this post) is open, so comment with your experience or someone else’s, and pimp this too, see how many stories we can get together.

I’ll show you mine, if you show me yours. And FList? You’re gonna find out some things about me you may not know under these cuts :D

Bloody Edinburgh. )

Woman in White. )

Other weird shit, including my Roma Downey moment and an encounter on a bed! )

So there you go! I think I’ve more, no doubt I do, but I want to hear yours!
Comment and pimp it people! :D
