What a fabulous night. Trick-or-Treating with the kid is absolutely epic. She was so awesome. I really am a super lucky mommy. I feel doubly blessed to have a husband who is perfectly content with me putting candy out on the step, so that the three of us can spend Halloween together. I have lots of pictures to edit and share… but for now, will share one my sister took for us on Saturday (the night of Denyse’s annual get-together):
As we enter this season of slumber, gather close those you treasure, share stories and food, and enjoy the quiet. Celebrate lives well lived, and remember well those who have already crossed to the other side. Blessed Samhain! …and a Happy Halloween too.
I’m posting earlier in the day than usual, but there is much to do today, and I likely won’t have another chance to sit at the computer later. I’m also cheating a little… The picture I’m sharing is one from yesterday AND is one my mom took. But I didn’t think anyone would mind. 😉
Be safe and blessed while you celebrate Samhain tonight.
For those who celebrate Halloween, have a ton of fun.
For those who don’t celebrate the season, just enjoy your evening.
We celebrate Samhain, and have a little Halloween fun too.
Samhain (pronounced Sow-en) is the Celtic new year. The celebration of the beginning of the dark half of the year. It’s a festival of the bounty received from the years harvest, and a time of remembrance. So say a prayer for those you have lost, and celebrate their lives, their love was a gift and this is the festival of thanks. It’s not about ghouls and ghosts and vampires or the creepy things that make up the frivolity of Halloween… but we enjoy that part of it too. So get all dolled up, go out trick or treating, let out a witchy cackle, and then settle in, hold your family close, warm yourselves with a glass of hot cider, and remember the blessings of the past year.
Much love everyone!
