But Yes, you can have a live service... Though to be fair it could be mixed with your promotion on the 26th. Actually you could just do it right after your promotion.


For my part, I think it's a beautiful idea to mix the remembrance of the dead with the celebration of the yet living. There's a certain balance and harmony in that to me. I think it's a wonderful idea to work commemoration of those past into the promotion of those still here (V-Tog) for a sort of all-purpose celebration of the full cycle of life...

Thats How I look at Halloween partly...

We are embracing the dead, as there should be nothing scary about dead things, and we are embracing life (the kids)...

The scariest things I face, are my worries for my children... Nothing else scares me...;) (ok, ren does... Oh, and the thought of the apocalypse, cause I dont know how people will cook cookies without a conventional oven...)

Completely off-topic, but I'm pretty anti-Halloween...as a kid I refused to go out trick-or-treating because my conscience would not allow me to go out and demand sweets from strangers...

In places in this country, in the area in which I live for example, the trick part of trick-or-treat can mean eggs thrown at your house, or even the odd stone through th windows...I'm not sure that we should be teaching children that threatening people (trick-or-treat being a threat, of course, whether innocent or not) is a fun and acceptable thing to do.

I'm all for Halloween parties and festivals and stuff though :)

From what I read in the link V-Tog provided, it is a day to remember:

"Jedi, as well as the friends and family of Jedi who have passed on throughout the year."

In this case, may I submit a name for the Memorial V? If you do one, that is. Not sure if I am technically considered a "Jedi" yet.

Resticon, you are a Jedi if you say you are a Jedi...

By legal definition, as a member of TOTJO, you are a Jedi...

I think V's ceremony, will just be a speaking out about it, as opposed to a roll call of names of those who have joined the Force...

But you are definitely free to write the name down and set it ablaze in a personal ceremony....

I think I might do that myself this year, only I have a bonfire for Halloween, so I'll do it then....

Its not the 'date's, its the idea...:)
