    Connecting with the dark shadow that is part of the light, embodying the turning of the seasons.

    I love the mundane ( All Hallows) and the sacred (Samhain) of the 31st. The solemnity, and the pageantry…..

  3. Darrell

    All I can say is , have you heard the Halloween story ‘Tailybone” ? I’ve told it and made the children scream !!

    Dia de Los muertos- delicious food, surrounded by stories and pictures of our loved ones!

    Autumn is a magical season. Halloween is a chance for young and old to step outside of themselves and embrace a part of that magic and excitement.

    I love the thought of taking a day to think of loved ones lost…surrounding yourself with their pictures and just celebrating the part of life that brings fear to everyone but that we all have to face. I think if we walk more towards death with an open heart we can better handle our time alive…

    I love dressing up for Halloween and carving pumpkins but Dia de los Muertos and SamHain speak to my spiritual side. I love the opportunity to celebrate and honor those who have passed on.

    I long for the nostalgia of early nightfall, the smell of dried leaves, the memories of warm meals after being outside for hours with friends getting so excited to dress up and go out trick or treating and sharing stories of Halloween! The best days of my life. 🌛

    My favorite part of DiaDe Los Muertos is the celebration and honoring of our ancestors who have walked before us. The American culture holds so much taboo around death and dying. However death is another beautiful transition on the continuum of living. In Mexico and Venezuela, as well as other Latin countries, this festival is a chance to remember, honor and celebrate the lives of so many that walked before us.

    I love the season. The leaves, the crisp air, and the celebration of the changing of the season.

    This a is time of the year where everyone comes together in the crip night and sprits become creative.
