Halloween = All Hallows’ Eve … which is the day before All Saints Day which was a Roman Catholic caveat to the pagan Celts to get them to do something else besides SamHain and variants.

The jack-o-lantern was a Celt token showing the passing demons that this house already had a demon.

Dressing up as scary things is acting out the demons passing by, and if you did not have a ‘treat’ to appease them they would curse you, “trick”.

Now some will say that it is just a bunch of fun for kids and adults who want to be kids … unless your ‘pagan’ … which is a Euro-descended non-Christian theist, then it is SamHain or another name and your high holy day.

This time around it’s Disney’s Haunted Mansion with Eddie Murphy. It should be funny. He has a good sense of the comedic.

Don’t eat too much candy. Watch your sugar intake. Be safe and have fun with your kids and your neighbors. Or go to a Fall Harvest Festival run by one of your local churches.
