Oh another Thing? Who you think Halloween would be under?

Kobal? Nybass? Haagenti?Beleth? So many possibletys.
The last handful of decades has seen Halloween change (at least in North America) into a commercialized event with little-to-no connection with the sacred event that preceded All Saints' Day. Mass merchandising, tie-ins to the popular children's characters of the year, the push that you have to take part... all hallmarks of The Media, I'd say.

Not Beleth, not any more. It's a sanitized and kid-friendly event nowadays, with nightmares strictly prohibited.

EDIT: The Mexican "Day of the Dead", on the other hand, is all about family and respect for the dead. If we knew more about the Archangel of Death, I might put that holiday under his care... but, for now, I'd be tempted to give it to Novalis.

Also known as a "reverance" or "showing reverence" - also appears as one of the more elaborate ballet bows.
