Welcome To Our Pre-Halloween Dance (Page One)
(October 17th 2014) Last Updated: 09/11/2019 10:38:AM
We do not wear costumes, we are scary enough! Halloween, a contraction of "All Hallows' Evening", also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows' Eve or All Saints' Eve, is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows' Day.
It initiates the triduum of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed believers.
Within Allhallowtide, the traditional focus of All Hallows' Eve revolves around the theme of using "humor and ridicule to confront the power of death."
We Get Down To Business At 5:30

What is going to be Lucky's "prop" this evening?
Did You Know? - A property, commonly shortened to prop (plural: props), is an object used on stage or on screen by actors during a performance or screen production. In practical terms, a prop is considered to be anything movable or portable on a stage or a set, distinct from the actors, scenery, costumes and electrical equipment. Consumable food items appearing in the production are also considered properties.
We are going to dance all night!

Song: Spooks On Parade or The Hearst Song
The Hearse Song is a song about death, of unknown origin. It was popular as a World War I song, and was popular in the 20th century as an American and British children's song, continuing to the present. It has many variant titles, lyrics, and melodies, but generally features the line "the worms crawl in, the worms crawl out", and thus is also known as The Worms Crawl In.
