Oh Halloween, the glory of it all! The history of the traditions, the Jack-O-Lantern from Ireland, the apples from Rome, the Day of the Dead, all Hallows Eve, All Saints Day, All Souls Day. What a rich and storied history of rituals and cultures all coming together to be celebrated and re-enacted and explored. And don't forget the Treats, of course! We can talk about it all, we celebrate it all, we reference the history and what tradition came from which culture, but basically, for my two, it comes down to one thing: Candy. Sigh. Sugar wins. As I guess sometimes it must.
Here we are, in preparation for our tricking and treating.
The Wicked Witch, Glenda the Good Witch, Mrs Darling (mother to Wendy, Micheal and John), Peter Pan, Tiger Lilly, Dorothy, Sunflower Lulu, the Magical Blue Fairy, Tinkerbell, the Fantastic Rainbow Fairy, Sunflower Liza, and Toto to!
