Happy Halloween!

Yes, All Hallows’ Eve is upon us once more. The fact that chocolate and costumes are involved in a major feast day will never cease to be awesome.

If you’re looking for a good spooky movie to watch, I would definitely recommend Nosferatu, the 1922 German silent film based (in an unofficial sort of way) on the Bram Stoker novel Dracula. There are no sparkles to be seen in this vampire movie; this is the undead the way they are meant to be seen–unpleasant and nasty. Of course, the 1925 version of The Phantom of the Opera is always a good film for this time of year, too.

I’m sorry to say that I can’t post my much-loved “Catholic Field Guide to the Undead” this year because it was taken off the internet. As an alternate, though, I have this article from ChurchPop.com on ossuary churches in Europe. What’s an ossuary church, you ask? Well, it’s a church that’s either partially or entirely constructed from the bones of the dead. Sometimes monasteries would run out of space in their cemeteries to bury their dead, so they would use the bones to build a chapel instead.

As a final note, I will not be doing National Blog Post Writing Month this year. My life has gotten busier than normal, and I don’t think I would have the time to dedicate to it this year. Next year, though, might be a different story.
