Happy Halloween!

These friendly little guys greeted me at work today …

Halloween is a fun little holiday that has its origins in a more serious and reflective holiday remembering those who have passed. The Celtic tradition is it’s actual origin – the holiday was called Samhain, and November 1 was the Celtic New Year. The Celtic tradition is worth reading about – it’s quite interesting.

In some ways, Halloween and Thanksgiving are a continuation of the Fall Harvest Festivals, and the seasons typically either have or are in the process of changing.

For kids, Trick or Treating is big fun and I love seeing the kids in their costumes.

My favorite holiday is actually Thanksgiving, but any holiday where you can give thanks, and which is based in the bounty of a harvest is all good by me.
