As a Catholic, not only do I celebrate Halloween, but I observe All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day on November 1st and 2nd. So Halloween is simply the Eve before Hallows. Hallows' Eve. That's not to say that we completely ignore the traditional fun and revelry. We decorate our home and trick-or-treat in costume on October 31st. We love to watch It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and we do carve our own pumpkins. If you're interested, there's a great teaching moment relating God's love for mankind to pumpkin carving here.
|My front porch got a makeover today. And all I had was my iPhone to photograph it at dusk. Oops.|
|Visitors to my home are welcomed by these "legs"...|
|I'm really pleased with how my front door turned out. You can't tell now, but the spider is glittery. Closer to Halloween, I'll put a black-light bulb in my porch light for a cool effect.|
