Dork-o-Rama: The Random Thoughts of a Total Goofball

Embracing the Dork Side....Because Life is Too Short to Take Yourself Too Seriously

Friday, October 28, 2005


Ahh, yes. It's that time of year again... when I am driven batty by the way many people pronounce "Halloween."

I hear "Holloween.." a LOT.

The occasion is "All Hallow's Eve," right? "Hallow" is not "hollow." On hallowed ground. Hallowed be thy name. You would never say "hollowed be thy name," while reciting the Lord's Prayer. Isn't that blasphemy?

Then why do so many people say "Holloween????"

I know. I should be concerning myself with bigger issues... like, when will Karl Rove get his??

I have a three-day weekend ahead of me, and I can't tell you how happy that makes me. Plus, we get to fall back on Sunday, meaning an extra hour for sleep or play! It couldn't come at a better time.
Don't forget to re-set your clocks this weekend.

The proper spelling is Hallowe'en (aka "All Hallow's Eve plus "native indolence")

From the liberry lover.
