A soul! a soul! a soul-cake!
Please good Missis, a soul-cake!
An apple, a pear, a plum, or a cherry,
Any good thing to make us all merry.
One for Peter, two for Paul
Three for Him who made us all.

Dear Fundamentalist Protestants,

Halloween is not Satanic.  It is a festival with deep Catholic roots (though, to many of you those are the same thing).

Dear Traditionalists,

Look at the above note to the fundamentalists.  Enjoy the ghoulish traditions of which your medieval forbears we were once so proud.  Or would you rather this day be remembered as “95 Theses” day?

Put on your costumes, eat some soul cakes, wash ’em down with beer, and party!
