Halloween is upon us and my pumpkins are on the porch. Where did all these tricks and treats come from? I was looking at some information related to the origin of Halloween and found some really interesting things related to my Irish roots.
Understanding that some folks think Halloween is a devilish type holiday and has been over commercialized, I still think there are good things that children can gain. Anytime you have the opportunity to make something positive out of something that some perceive as negative; it is good in my opinion.
Children get to dress up and be creative and have a good time. Hopefully, it is all under parental guidance.
Politicians are similar, particularly during the election season. They like to “dress up,” pretend to be someone else and scare you. We should all make an effort to determine the real person behind the mask when it comes election time. That’s all I have to say about that.
