Goeiemorgen! I have been told that it's spooky season πŸ‘» . Do we consider that an American perversion of our Celtic traditions or do we roll with it?

Makes me think, when I used 6 of those technologies at work in the last 3 years :thinking_face:

borkdude07:10:22

Oh, I've heard of these. The world tree saw story was the one I recognized.

@orestis given my birthday and the state of my face, I'm pretty sure I'm a Kallikantzaros
