Did you know that Halloween was started by the ancient Celts, who thought the souls of the dead returned to earth to hang out with the living during the Samhain festival, which celebrated the end of summer. It was not supposed to be spooky, rather a celebration of the departed spirits and a time for reflection. Many years later, candlelit turnips carved with mean faces were used to frighten away the spirits...eventually, immigrants in US used the more plentiful pumpkins.
Last year, snow covered the ground for Halloween, This year we have a lovely wall of color as we look at the mountains and the skies are grey and beginning to look ominous. Gusty winds are beginning to build, perhaps giving us good howling sounds to take us through the evening. Otherwise, it's going to be quiet around here.
