Do you remember as a kid, how excited you were to celebrate Halloween? It was a day filled with imagination and of course the prize…candy. School was the best…with the costumes, Halloween parade around the class rooms, and then all the treats filling your tummies with frosted cookies, punch and cupcakes.
However, somewhere over the years, Halloween became bad. I hear people say its the Devil’s day. Halloween is really short for “All Hallows Eve”, the day before All Saints Day on November 1…originating from Roman’s dedication to all Saints…coming from Christianity.
Not the Devil’s day at all…quite the contrary.
Let’s not ruin the fun for our children that we once had, before we became so cynical.
