It’s October 31. Pumpkins are everywhere along with colorful foliage, and scary movies. I love Halloween. It’s a fun holiday with candy and adorable kids in costume. It’s more, though. It’s also Samhain (pronounced sow-in). Samhain is an ancient Celtic holiday that is still celebrated by Wiccans. It is believed to be a time when the barrier between this world and the next is thin, and those who have passed on can visit. It is not, and never has been, linked to Satan worship–although there are those, who take the opportunity to hurt black cats and other sick things. These people need medical help.
Today, for most of us, Halloween is a time to wear costumes, watch scary movies, go to parties, eat candy, or whatever else we choose to do. So take care of yourself, have a good time, don’t eat too much candy, and if you happen to see a ghost….say hello!
