What exactly does Halloween represent to you?

Is it a celebration of some sort...is it just about fun...is it about the candy grin

or is it just another "holiday" to you??

Halloween (or Hallowe’en) is an international holiday celebrated on October 31. Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, ghost tours, bonfires, costume parties, visiting haunted attractions, carving jack-o'-lanterns, reading scary stories, and watching horror movies. Irish immigrants carried versions of the tradition to North America in the nineteenth century. Other western countries embraced the holiday in the late twentieth century. Halloween is celebrated in several countries of the Western world, most commonly in the United States, Canada, Ireland, Puerto Rico, Japan, New Zealand, United Kingdom, and occasionally in parts of Australia. In Sweden the All Saints' official holiday takes place on the first Saturday of November.

For me, this is a very Spiritual holiday (Sabbat) when the veils between worlds are thinner and it is time to honor and remember those who I have loved who have crossed over before me.

So I have a lot of family and dear ones to remember this year. I couldn't do this last year because it was too close to when I lost my husband, so although I wallowed drunkenly in memories, I didn't honor his Spirit properly. (Though that might be debatable since he was an alcoholic. Hmmm.hmmm )

Seriously, this is a very sacred day for me.

Blessings, everyone. Have a hallowed Samhain.

We don't get into the spirit of it as much as I'd like, so I'm on a singlehanded mission to up the ante down here at the bottom of the world.

Halloween to me not only means all the things you guys have mentioned, but a chance to put some fun in the world as well.

I am having a Halloween "Victorian Ghost" themed dinner party this year, complete with story & everything.
