Halloween & All Saint’s Day

Halloween which is really known as All Hollow’s Eve started as a way to honor the two days following: All Saint’s Day and All Soul’s Day. Many Catholics choose to skip Halloween and celebrate the Holy Day of Obligation, All Saint’s Day, instead. I’m not a big celebrator of Halloween myself, but I’ll go to a party.

Vodka, Tacos & St. Francis of Assisi?

More often than not, you ordered a Long Island Iced Tea. They made them in massive amounts and they were delicious. Too bad they aren’t that cheap anywhere else in the world!
