Blawg Review

It's not just a blog carnival; it's the law! ~ a fool in the forest

Trick or Treat?

"This Halloween Season McDowell Laybourne & Rodemer reminds you to be safe and designate a drunk driver." (hic)

The badly-drafted blog post speaks volumes, and the picture's worth a thousand words.

In the spirit of the season, we have a special treat this week, the 31 October 2010 edition of ukblawgroundup, the fourth in the series of round-ups initiated by Michael Scutt to promote blogging lawyers in the UK, hosted by In-House Lawyer Melanie Hatton.
The theme of this edition is, spookily enough, what with the date and everything, Halloween; the origins of which date back to the Celtic festival of Samhain which celebrates the end of the "lighter half" of the year and beginning of the "darker half", where the border between this world and the other becomes thin enough to let the spirits pass through, and when we wear costumes and masks to ward off evil.
What a hoot!

Blawg Review #288 this week is hosted by Houston's Paul B. Kennedy at The Defense Rests, where he presents "assorted ghosts, ghouls, demons, witches and clowns from the blawgosphere."

So there you have it, a double dose of Halloween treats from blawgers around the world!
