Ever wonder why we do this Halloween thing? Well, there is a connection to this chapter that we are studying. My main man, Pope Gregory III created All Saints Day, on the heels of the Celtic festival of Samhain. Somehow this evolved into high school kids old enough to drive, who show up at my door begging for candy without a costume. Sorry, I'm not down with that. Nor am I down with the 40 year-old Moms and Dads also begging with open sacks. Have they considered how desperate and sad that really is?
Anyway, also crazy to think of how much $money$ is spent each Halloween in America.
