All Saints

Halloween was fun for L and the girls; they went out in the old part of town. We didn't get many tick or treaters here, just enough though for the candy to almost deplete. During the evening we watched Sunday, Bloody Sunday, as much a social and political commentary as anything else, I think. I'd forgotten how good an actress Glenda Jackson is/was (?). The movie was a snapshot of Britain when I first visited there as a teenager, and that's how I think of it still.

The unstoppable train that is Thanksgiving and Christmas has pulled away from the station . . .

It's the pull, isn't it? I can feel it. Every weekend between now and 25 December is taken up ...

(and we don't really do Halloween much or Thanksgiving at all over here).

You've captured the feeling well with the expression "the unstoppable train..."!

I think Glenda Jackson is a member of parliament now. And to think she started out as a shop assistant in Boots the chemist.
