Happy Reformation/Jinx's Birthday!

Weird title, I know. =D
Today is my cat's birthday! Jinx is officially 3 years old and still small and slinky. =D She's so....jinxy. =D (sorry, that's her nickname around here!) What is funny is that she's completely black, not a white hair on her, and we named her "Jinx" before we found out that her birthday was October 31. *grin*
Also, today is NOT Halloween, but Reformation Day. On October 31st in 1517, Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the doors of Schlosskirche church, sparking the Reformation. This is a picture of the doors of that church. I believe that we as Christians should celebrate Reformation Day, in honor of the Reformation, and not the play day of demons known as Halloween. One question to think about would be, "why do Christians want to celebrate with demons, and not the birthdate of the Reformation?" ...just something to think about.

Happy Reformation!

Jinx is so cute! I've got a black cat, too, but he's fat and his name is Albus.
