Trick or Treat!

It might seem silly after all these years, but the American celebration of Halloween is still one of my favorites.

Its light hearted and usually happens when the weather starts turning towards Winter. The days get very much shorter in the Northern Hemisphere.

While All Hallowed Eve is a time to celebrate and remember loved ones who’ve passed – serious stuff, and November 1 being All Souls Day, I do love the childhood memories that the less serious Halloween celebrations bring. When I see kids in costumes it brings a big smile in me.

I think Thanksgiving is still my favorite and one holiday of gratitude and giving thanks that should be a daily celebration. I think it has great universal meaning regardless of culture or religion, and even if much of the history we were taught was simplified and sanitized, the core idea of Thanksgiving is a good thing, regardless.
