Halloween  is a time to dress up and wear masks. No one knows who we are when we wear costumes! But when Halloween is over we take off our masks and we become ourselves again. We become the special person that God made us to be. 

The traditional  Halloween  customs practiced in our country today date back to ancient Britain and Ireland. A great festival was held to mark the end of summer. At this time, the herds returned from the pasture. It was said that the souls of the dead returned to revisit their homes… and that is where we get the idea of imaginary ghosts and goblins.

These pagan ideas influenced the Christian festival of ALL SAINTS’ EVE which gradually became known as Halloween, which means the eve of all saints. So actually, Halloween is a pagan feast that took the religious name Halloween. 

A famous symbol of Halloween is the jack-o-lantern, a hollowed out pumpkin with sometimes a scary face. A lighted candle is often placed inside. The pumpkin is a symbol of the harvest and the lighted candle was originally meant to guide the souls of the dead back to their home.

Be safe Halloween night and remember to say a prayer for a loved one.
