Just one question

Saw an article in the paper which said that a motion to make Yorkshire day (1st August) a national (bank) holiday has passed the first milestone in Parliament as it has achieved 100 signatures.

Now I am a proud Yorkshireman but i have a counter proposal and that is that Halloween be made a holiday as it falls in a fairly empty time between summer and Christmas and represents many ancient beliefs of this small island (oh and it's my birthday hehe)

So, the only question is should Halloween be a national holiday? or should it be an international holiday?

Any holiday which encourages the eating of sweets, dressing up and giving pressies to Toads should ba a holiday :)

There is quite a serious attempt being made to acknowledge November 11th as a Bank Holiday.

Am a BIG fan of Halloween but think that supporting the motion to celebrate a day in remembrance of our fallen soldiers is possibly more likely.

I'm not sure of the details, but I know that so many people signed the government petition that they are 'apparently' considering it seriously. Will keep you posted if I hear any more details......

I think it's the fun and sweets (and gifts) that keep me young(ish)

I didn't know about the nov 11 campaign, i agree it would be appropriate
