Happy Halloween

Halloween Trivia:

Halloween was originally called Samhain, and marked the beginning of the Celtic New Year.
Samhain, roughly translated, means summers end.

The day was celebrated starting at sundown on October 31 and through the day on November 1. It was believed, that Samhain is when the veil between this world and the spirit world is thinnest, and departed spirits can return to mingle with the living.

The jack-o'-lantern, also has a Celtic origin. Based on a folklore tale about a ghost named Jack, jack-o'-lanterns were originally made using a hollowed-out turnip with a small candle inside, and were set out during Samhain to guide lost souls — and scare away evil ones.

The scariest fact of them all:
Halloween candy sales average 2 Billion dollars annually in the United States.

Friday Night at the Fights...

Victory is sweet...

Now Cindy, how do you really feel?

Turning upside down...

There are many benefits from viewing the world from this angle.... headstands reverse the action of gravity on the body, turning everything upside down throws a new light on things! Being inverted can reduce anxiety and stress, increase self confidence, mental power and concentration...

Inversions have a very positive influence on the lymphatic, endocrine, cardiovascular and nervous systems.

Great job ladies!
