November 1st, a day to remember loved ones passed on.
Hallows eve, the night before becomes HALLOWEEN.
A time of dressing up and trick or treating...how interesting.
Vampires, skeletons, witches and zombies dominate the night.
A traditional holiday that has little to do with holiness,
focused on fantasy, and greediness for trick or treaters.
How strange...one of most children's favorite holidays.
My least favorite as I disappear in my darkened home.
Oh yes, I know it's creative and cheap fun for kids.
But all that sugar isn't good for young growing bodies,
not to mention the tooth decay. I remember as a teacher
the sugar high of my students that lasted for days on end.
Now fall and AUTUMN, that's something to celebrate.
The end of the hot summer temperatures, the beginning
of preparing for the retirement of winter for all growing
things including man and God's creations––nature.
