It was a normal day in the cemetery and being April 31st it was their one day of the year.
As evening settled, the first of the dead began arriving. Old Arthur Jones, long time inhabitant, floated by complaining that as the years past it was harder each year to find the motivation to celebrate. Josie Jones, the newest occupant, found herself being woken by the din above her.
The dead cavorted, dancing to the music of the band, Dead As.
This went on until sunrise when the bodies descended to the cold and discomfort of their resting places.
