very cool illo mitchie! i like the "trouble" one also :-) i think you should send your cartoons to the new yorker magazine :-)

to swahnen: it's the same as alla helgons dag, but it's a bigger deal in the US. halloween's original purpose, as i understand it, was to dress up in scary costumes and frighten off all the evil spirits before the religous holiday that follows -- all saints day.

but now, kids walk around the neighborhood after dark, knock on doors and say "trick or treat!" -- which usually earns them a gift of candy -- a treat -- from the people inside. if they don't get any candy, they might perform a "trick" on the house -- usually a harmless prank such as decorating a tree with toilet paper.

it reminds me of guy fawkes day in the UK.

it's also becoming a popular occasion in the U.S. for costume parties for children and adults alike
