Now that Halloween is over, we should ask: What was Halloween all about? And what does it celebrate?
It celebrates the dark tunnel & the life at the end of the tunnel; the short time from night to day; the longer time from winter to spring; and the longest time of all for each of us- from birth to death and then back to life again.
Halloween night, October 31.
All Saint’s Day, Nov. 1.
All Soul’s Day & the Day of the Dead, Nov. 2.
All of these holidays celebrate the same thing: the dark tunnel & the life at the end of the tunnel.
And so, think about death, my friends, but embrace & celebrate life.
And be glad, so very glad, to be alive!
