Kev’s Daily Take On 10/31/2022


I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands,
One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Religious Holidays

REFORMATION DAY marks one of the big splits in Christianity.  Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses on a church door in Wittenberg, Germany exposing the corruption of the Roman Catholic Church at the time.  These theses also outlined a different view of Christianity, namely, that you are saved by Grace through faith, and not of works.  For this Luther, was branded a heretic by the Church and permission was given for anyone to kill him without consequence.  From this event the Protestant Reformation started.  God first, then man, then religion – that’s my take on it.

Education and Information

Girl Scout Founder’s Day is celebrated on the birthday of Juliette Gordan Low – the person who founded the Girl Scouts of America back in 1912.  Eighteen girls were present at that first meeting; today, there are over 3.7 million members who promise to be prepared and do a good turn daily.  This excellent organization “builds girls of confidence, courage and character who make the world a better place”.

For Fun

HALLOWEEN – the night when the veil between the worlds of the living and the dead all but disappears, allowing the spirits to walk among us.  The night when children scamper from house to house, dressed in costume, seeking treats and not tricks.  Pumpkins turned into Jack-O-Lanterns and houses bedecked with ghosts, spiders and ghouls acknowledge this All Hallows Eve.  There is plenty of lore about this night, too much to tell here.  Just beware of what walks up to your door – is it a girl or a ghoul? A boy gobbling on some candy – or a goblin snacking on a boy? Bwa ha ha ha!


NATIONAL MAGIC DAY was founded on the death date of Harry Houdini by the Society of American Magicians.  It was 1926 when the escape artist succumbed to the infections from a ruptured appendix, and there is an air of mystery as to what actually happened.  Celebrate your favorite performers and their signature tricks and illusions.
