    No. And we don't really have them now, except when some people have a Mods vs. Rockers event and then they dress up like Halloween.

    Speaking of Halloween, I heard that you Brits don't really celebrate it, which I found odd 'cause I thought it originated in ye olde tyme
    Medeival England...What's the truth on that one?

    There is a whole show about Halloween on TV, check around October for either the tavel chanel or History.


    Historian Nicholas Rogers, exploring the origins of Halloween, notes that while "some folklorists have detected its origins in the Roman feast of Pomona, the goddess of fruits and seeds, or in the festival of the dead called Parentalia, it is more typically linked to the Celtic festival of Samhain, whose original spelling was Samuin (pronounced sow-an or sow-in)".[1] The name is derived from Old Irish and means roughly "summer's end".[1] A similar festival was held by the ancient Britons and is known as Calan Gaeaf (pronounced Kálan Gái av).


    Snap-Apple Night by Daniel Maclise showing a Halloween party in Blarney, Ireland, in 1832. The young children on the right bob for apples. A couple in the center play a variant, which involves retrieving an apple hanging from a string. The couples at left play divination games.The festival of Samhain celebrates the end of the "lighter half" of the year and beginning of the "darker half", and is sometimes[2] regarded as the "Celtic New Year".[3]

    The ancient Celts believed that the border between this world and the Otherworld became thin on Samhain, allowing spirits (both harmless and harmful) to pass through. The family's ancestors were honoured and invited home while harmful spirits were warded off. It is believed that the need to ward off harmful spirits led to the wearing of costumes and masks. Their purpose was to disguise oneself as a harmful spirit and thus avoid harm. In Scotland the spirits were impersonated by young men dressed in white with masked, veiled or blackened faces.[4][5] Samhain was also a time to take stock of food supplies and slaughter livestock for winter stores. Bonfires played a large part in the festivities. All other fires were doused and each home lit their hearth from the bonfire. The bones of slaughtered livestock were cast into its flames.[6] Sometimes two bonfires would be built side-by-side, and people and their livestock would walk between them as a cleansing ritual.

    Another common practice was divination, which often involved the use of food and drink.

    The name 'Halloween' and many of its present-day traditions derive from the Old English era

    From the WIKIPEDIA

    From American Influence it has changed allot throughout the world, I guess we water down everything until it becomes a marketing scheme...

    I always wondered what the hell "Samhain" meant -all I ever knew was that Glenn Danzig used it for the title of his band after the Misfits...

    BTW Whitehurst, I still have every intention of sending some brew your way, but every free penny for the next month or so will be devoted to getting my bike up and running...
