Be Halloweening

I am sure if I looked into the history of Halloween or asked one of my non-Halloween-going friends, we may not participate in October 31st activities. But we do and we do it well! IMG_6818.JPGIMG_6819.JPG

  1. I have a thought for you on Halloween. (I posted an interesting article on the history too if you’re interested). In a nutshell I think people got together for Samhain because they needed each other for support going into the winter. If you strip away all the rituals and appealing to the spiritual world for help..that’s what I see. Food got scarce, people died, it was scary times. What we saw in our community was people bundled up drinking coffee and chatting, still craving that need to connect. It was also the 495th anniversary of the reformation, huge turning point in Christian history. Kinda cool! Sent from my iPhone
