Ghosts and goblins, zombies and witches, we go door to door, collecting confectionery riches. We traipse through the streets on All Hallows Eve, displaying our costumes for all those to see.
But few of us know that this day from long ago,was ritualized by Celtics, Druids and Christians alike. Yes, that’s right, for over 2000 years now, festivals were celebrated on this night as people lit bonfires and wore costumes to ward off roaming ghosts. The next day, November 1, the New Year would come and honor be given to saints, martyrs and all their passed loved ones.
Although we have lost most of the history of Halloween, we take that time to dress up and have fun as we relive the more carefree time of our youth.
Let this carefree time in your life continue as you skip down the street and shuffle your feet. Throw up your arms, then swing them around. And cherish the times when you don’t need to be so serious about life.
Wishing you a day filled with only treats!
