sheghostly asked: What is the true meaning of Halloween?

facts-i-just-made-up:

"Halloween" is a contraction of "All Hallows’ Eve," meaning the night before "All Hallows’ Day," the day on which Harry Potter was in possession of the elder wand, the resurrection stone, and the invisibility cloak, together called "The Deathly Hallows." Potter only had the Hallows together for one day, on which he had to defeat Voldemort or watch Hogwarts be destroyed.

So on the evening before this fateful day, we dress up as our favorite characters from the Harry Potter saga, including Goblins, Elves, Death Eaters or Harry’s best friends. In recent years, people have started going as any character from fact or fiction.

On Halloween, it’s traditional for kids to go around asking for candy, remembering Harry’s first meeting with Ron in which candy was served. They say, “Trick or Treat,” in reference to Ron’s brothers, Fred and George who ran their own trick and treat shop.

There is some controversy as a few fringe individuals claim that Halloween was celebrated before the Harry Potter series was published. This is of course false and the result of botched statistics that average out modern Halloween with only a single instance of the holiday in 1237 B.C.

That holiday was the work of Georg K. Rowling, an ancestor of the author, who was an outlier and should not have been counted.

Date someone who meets you half way. Date someone who brings you a glass a water when they get themselves one. Date someone who makes sure you don’t spend money on ridiculous things. Date someone your ex hates and your mom loves. Date someone who’d rather spend a Friday night watching movies, than out with 50 people they barley even talk to. Date someone who sleeps on your chest and leaves a little puddle of drool. Don’t date someone who makes you leave oceans of tears. — At the end of the day it’s the little things. (via offtheocean)

so today my ap art history teacher was teaching us about Hapshetsut the only female pharaoh and he was like “have you seen women they can pop out a baby and be like alright let’s go” and then he walked over to this guy and aimed his fist towards his balls and the guy flinched and held his crotch so he was like “men may be stronger but women are tougher” and then he said “so when someone tells you to grow a pair, they mean ovaries”

Can’t stop, won’t stop: Protesters in Ferguson rally again, seeking justice for Mike Brown. More than a month and a half after his death, his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. (Pt 2) 

Because it wouldn’t be a protest in Ferguson without fuckery from the police. A driver plowed his car through protesters, grazing several and running over a young boys foot. Beyond taking several hours to transport the boy to the hospital, they took even longer to arrest the motorist. Who did they not wait long to arrest? Two of the protesters who had been documenting the altercation for the world to see. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. #staywoke #farfromover #nojusticenopeace
