  • Halloween is NOT about death. It's about celbrating and remembering the lives of those that past. Not about death. There is a difference! Obviously it has changed through the decades, but each of the Celebrations it has drawn energy from (Samhain, Day of the Dead, All Souls Night) were NOT about celebrating death, but about remembering and honoring those that died...

  • My husband made a comment the other day about how we as a society don't like to deal with death and dying. He thought it was ironic that halloween is such a big holiday. The decorations in peoples yards are as much as Christmas!! And it is all gravestones, ghosts, witches, etc! For a culture that doesn't like to deal with real death, it is kind of funny to see how much fun people have with "death" at Halloween. Ironic.

  • Is there something wrong about 'celebrating death'?
    My understanding is that it is when the veil separating the dead and the living is at it's thinnest.

    Death is part of life, people!
