The Center for Inquiry is throwing a huge holiday bash for Halloween this year. It is scheduled for Saturday, October 30th, from 7pm until midnight at the First Unitarian Universalist Church in Austin. Come join your fellow heathens as we celebrate Halloween 2010 and the Celtic end of summer and start of the new year known as ‘Samhain’. There is some dispute about the pronunciation of Samhain. Here is a link to a site that has audio that makes it sound like 'SAU when':

We are providing child-friendly activities to ensure everyone has a chance to have a ghoulish great time. We ask that you bring a small dish to contribute to the PotLuck; and alcoholic beverages are BYOB. We encourage everyone to dress in their most spook-tacular fashions- silent judges will reveal prizes for the best costumes.
