Trick or treat! Halloween for the kiddies is all about the costumes and the treats. I do miss the days when my kids were younger and we would go out trick or treating, to park district parties all decked out in costume, and generally having a great time.
Now that my kids are older, I understand more about the true meaning of this Holiday. The veil is thinner between this world and the other side. This is the day to think upon and honor those who have passed before us.
Light some candles, prepare an extra plate, thank the ancestors for their guidance, meditate.
