Today many people are celebrating the day of the dead. For whatever reason this doesn't seem to be frowned upon so much by the church whereas Hallowe'en is. Yesterday was the day it is believed by some of us that the veil between the worlds is the thinnest and that those who have passed before us should be remembered. I spent the evening in town helping hand out candy to all those who chose to walk the sidewalks in front of all the businesses. The churches were doing their own thing calling it Fall Festival or Trunk or Treat (?). I got into costume and enjoyed (for the most part) seeing all the costumes people chose to put on their young ones. I do have to question why parents think their infants or toddlers need to be out and about getting candy. Is it really for the kid? I don't think so. Some of the little ones were just plain confused. Some people even had their pooches in costume. Good grief. Well, blessed be those who passed before us, those who are with us, and those who are waiting to be.
Bright blessings to you all.
