Happy Halloween from the Law Society of Saskatchewan library staff. We hope that you have a safe and happy holiday and that you take advantage of the one day a year when it’s perfectly acceptable to take candy from strangers.

And because we can’t resist a good (bad) joke: Why don’t skeletons like parties? They have no body to dance with.
