Y’all, it’s Halloween season. Y’all. Halloween!
I’m a little excited. It might be my favourite holiday during my favourite time of year. As a Canadian Fall has officially started, and it’s starting to get cool already, we even had to turn on the heat this morning!
I view my approach to Halloween the same as I imagine Christians approach Christmas, as both a spiritual holiday and more commercial celebration. I’ll be doing rituals and connecting spiritually with ancestors and revering the cycle of life, including death. But I’ll also be decorating (I’m doing a spider theme this year and calling it Web of Death), and I’m hoping to do a murder mystery 🙂
But before all of this I need to get through Thanksgiving!!! I’m a big grump when it comes to rushing the holidays. If you’re interested check out my mainstream holiday blog Holiday Corner and expect a cross post coming soon, as I focus on Thanksgiving, I’ll be getting my kitchen witch on and making a magickal pumpkin soup.
I hope everyone’s as excited as me for Fall and Halloween, I just wish Winter and snow didn’t follow!
*PS – why does a Canadian East Coaster say “y’all”? Because half of my family are American Southerners, that’s why 😉
