A minor vanity

When I was in elementary school, I was carefully taught to spell October's big holiday Hallowe'en -- with an apostrophe for the missing "v." Nobody does this any more, but I continue on as I was taught. For me, that's the "right" way to do it.

Not criticizing anybody else's spelling practice here, just saying whence this quirk of mine arises. You spell it how you want. But I shall continue as I began.
