Here in Canada we celebrate Halloween every year. It's a tradition and it's a fun time to hang with friends. And the candy is great too. But the cool thing about halloween was that there was a full moon. I was outside and it got foggy but 6:30-7:30. I lost track of time so i m not sure.

Melusine, is that Sankt Martin in German? Here it's a day where all the little kids go out holding lanterns and singing "Laterne, Laterne..." cute wait a minute, I used to do that too! ach, nevermind. Well, in any case, Halloween isn't really celebrated. I HAVE seen a few pumpkins around but - people, you only light them on the 31st, okay? They haven't really gotten the hang of it... no trick-or-treating either.
And Byronas - I think we have that holiday in February too, Fasching it's called.

Why do people say "I am a Wicca"? Forgive me if I am wrong, but Wicca is the religion and the person practising it is Wiccan. (I say this as a pagan myself). I do not hear Christians say "I am a Christianity."
Not to be bitchy, or anything. I just find that a lot of people today like to say they are pagan to get a reaction and be "different" without actually knowing much about it. (Not intended as an insult to anyone).

Maybe this is because cleric 2 is Dutch and does not have English as his first language. Give him a bit of slack. It could have been a typo.

Yeah, I was afraid that it might be taken as an attack on Cleric 2 (hence my disclaimer), but such was not my intent. I have heard a number of people say that, including people who are native English speakers. Anyhow, like I said, it wasn't an attempt to be bitchy or anything. Just a pet peeve.
