Saints

Walk by the River, Enderby

A couple of days more, then we celebrate Halloween. Tuesday is All Saints Day, started by Pope Gregory Third in the 8th Century. Apparently we are all Saints, if we are true believers. But on Tuesday we remember and celebrate the lives of all the dead ones, sometimes specializing in the ones that died in the last year. But somehow I can't quite connect Monday's celebrations with all that, when ghosts and skeletons of all the saints come around demanding candy. Interestingly, this year some schools have banned the wearing of scary costumes. Another example of death avoidance in our modern society.

Apparently all the little goblins will have to cope with thirty centimeters of snow over NE North America on Monday....
