Are We Remembering The Dead?

Interesting that Hallowe'en is a contraction of All Hallows(saints) Eve. It means "holy evening" and its usage began about 1556. This is a Christian celebration that is observed and dedicated to remembering the saints, martyrs, and dead that have gone before us. Some churches observe this time by lighting candles on the graves of the dead and with church services and even abstaining from eating meat on this day. How do you celebrate this day?

We go to church or visit the graves of departed love ones. It is a reunion also for families.

I don't celebrate the day, but I do give out candy to those who do show up at my door. This year we are bringing our granddaughter out to relatives and friends homes.
