I don’t “celebrate” Halloween. Not any more. Sure, my kids enjoyed the whole trick or treat thing — a completely secular sugar high that could last for all of November! And with December baking round the corner, they didn’t have to come down till January!
I get messages sometimes from other pagans. Telling me “Happy Halloween” and it makes me wonder what the fuck. Halloween comes from (All) Hallows Evening — the time right before the Catholic festival for All Saints (all hallows — hallow as in hallowed, holy). I’m not Catholic any more, so Halloween, like Easter, is off my calendar.
