+   All Saints Day, and Halloween   +
Halloween is a topic that brings up mixed feelings for some parents, and yet some parents revel in this day and night. Others avoid the subject and focus on autumn/harvest celebrations. Worth reading: "Some Halloween Thoughts".

All Saints Day is one of the major feast days in the liturgical churches and an opportunity for our children to discover saints, people who show us something of God in how they responded to extraordinary challenges.

The two days are, historically, intertwined! Take a look at "Halloween Time: Samhain, All Saints, Los Dios de Las Muertes"
