Tonight is Trick or Treat in Beaver Dam, from 4-6pm. Friends of the Beav, Hope and Ali, dressed her up in an Angel-Devil costume.
Halloween or “All Hallows’ Eve” falls one day prior to All Halllows’ Day, when we pay respects to the souls of our dearly departed.
Traditions for observing Halloween are manifold. In Scotland and Ireland turnips are carved rather than pumpkins. One twist on the holiday has departed souls wandering the planet on Halloween. The costumes or “disguises” are to guard against returning souls who might be out for vengeance.
It’s the one day of the year when we mock the otherwise somber notions of death and Satan.
