Halloween costume October 2015.

Halloween costume October 2015.

Halloween party in Hampstead, October 2015. Jonathan Ross.

We don't like Halloween.


  1. I don't like Halloween either. Apparently it was a gentle fun tradition in America, homely, but Hollywood turned it into something sinister. Trick it treat, what happens if you don't treat? Fortunately, nowadays the parents come along with the kids and it seems to be a gentle fun thing here now too now. I guess the parents come because most people won't let their children out without adult supervision.

    Years ago we had firework night, and that was good enough. When I think about it though, that was pretty sinister enough. They burnt Guy Fawkes at the stake and people celebrated it ever since by putting an effigy of Guy Fawkes on a bonfire. When you're young you don't think about it.

  2. Below is documentary by Derren Brown on the paranormal. He doesn't believe in spirits, or ghosts, or the other world but he can't explain how these paranormal experiences occur.

    In the documentary he has 12 volunteers and he hypnotises one them to sleep and then pulls a curtain in front of them, and instantly they will throw an object over the curtain but when he pulls the curtain away they are still asleep and have no recollection of throwing anything. He then shows them video footage shot from above in the ceiling and as soon as the curtain is drawn the person grabs an object and throws it over. The person is amazed as they no recollection of doing this. He then does the same thing with someone else and things get very spooky indeed.

    Derren then tells the volunteers about how a group of people who had committed suicide together by drinking bleach in this building 20 years ago They are in the room where it happened and Derren caries out a séance with them.

    Once it gets going objects start to move about and levitate and Jane, a spirit, talks through a volunteer who was selected to be the medium. Everyone is totally spooked out and very frightened. Then Jane gives details of her life which none of volunteers knows anything about. The coincidences are incredible: they find out where she used to live, who she used to visit and whereabouts it was, and they get her cat's name, Harry.

    But there's a twist which I will keep secret as it will spoil the ending of the documentary. But it does seam that we do have some sort of spiritual telepathic connection with each other and objects can definitely move and levitate without anyone touching them.

    This brings us back to the quantum physics, matter and antimatter, good and evil, the opposites which are necessary for consciousness, and our spirituality which is often a topic on the Angirfan site.

  3. Excuse me Anonymous but Guy Fawkes was given the standard execution of a commoner for treason which was, hanging, drawing and quartering. The tradition of celebratory bonfires and burning in effigy dates from, at least, 1606. As a Roman Catholic I don't join in.

  4. Thanks for the correction. Now I know.
