Day Two Hundred Sixty Four, October 13, 2011

yes, we love Halloween

Over two thousand years ago, the Druids believed that the souls of the dead roamed the streets at night and they also believed that these souls needed to be honored. As for the souls that were unfriendly and a bit scary, well for those they left offerings to ensure they were pleased and no harm would come to the crops the following year. So the end of the harvest year, October 31st was to be “Samhain” the end of summer holiday. This later got diluted and became the Halloween we know today and the offerings became candy.

Every year on the first day of October Lea starts to prepare for her favorite holiday and our home gets transformed bit by bit into a haunted house and naturally we bathe with our witch hats!
