All Hallows’ Eve (or All Saints’ Eve): The day (night) when the hellish and demonic are abroad and occultists celebrate all things goulish, spooky and downright scarey… or an excuse to terrorise the neighbours/family and extort confectionary.
Christmas Day : The celebration of the birth of dear baby Jesus, the three wise men giving gifts and shepherds, angels, crustaceans in attendance … or an excuse to terrorise (or be terrorised by) the neighbours/family(or their visitors) and over indulge; especially on confectionary. This is maybe a stash from a mid-autumn sortie, but more usually the sugar laden/cocoa light contents of a selection box from Auntie Mary.
So although these two festivals appear may similar they are in fact equal, and it’s all down to numbers (isn’t it always )
OCT 31 = DEC 25
Octal (abbreviated to OCT, and a little up the food chain from binary ) is used by silicon based non-life forms aka computers to represent numbers internally.
It is a base8 number system ( … 512 64 8 U )
Decimal (abbreviated to DEC, and used mainly for presenting numbers to carbon based life forms using computers).
It is the number system that we know and love (…100 10 U or H T U for the older readers )
OCT 31 = (3 x 8 ) + 1 = 25
DEC 25 = (2 x 10) + 5 = 25
And there we have it Oct 31 = 25 Dec ….. the old ones are the best ones
Look out for 666 coming soon
