Prepare yourself this Halloween for a procession of pint-sized trick-or-treaters more bloody and gruesome than you've ever encountered before.
If the companies that gamble on offering the right mix of costumes are correct, visitors to your doorstep will include a grisly array of waist-high killer clowns brandishing blood-soaked machetes, deranged convicts and zombie ninjas armed with knives.
Add to that the full roster of fictional killers who gave people nightmares during the 80s and 90s - Freddy Krueger, Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th and Chucky, the murderous doll from Child's Play - now available in sizes that can fit a five-year-old.
It was also thought that during this time of year the physical and supernatural worlds were at their closest, and magical things could occur. The dead were said to visit their former homes at this time of the year.
They believed that during Samhain, the veil between the human and the supernatural worlds was parted and that spirits, both good and evil, roamed the earth. The souls of the dead were thought to return to their homes, and families would put out food and drink for their ghostly visitors in hopes of appeasing them.

Both posters mentioned above are correct. Halloween is the moment when the 'veil' or terra-boundary, a thin invisible barrier that spirits cannot (naturally) pass through is at its thinnist during each and every year.
In fact this year, due to stella activity it wouldn't surprise me if the barrier is completely down throughout Halloween.

Actually, according to Jack Chick, not telling your kid that Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy aren't real is enough to turn him into a child murderer, terrorist and serial killer.
