Editorial: Halloween

As you all know Halloween is next week and I am very excited. Do you know where Halloween derived from? The name is actually a shortened version of "All Hallows' Even," the eve of All Hallows' Day. "Hallow" is an Old English word for "holy person," and All Hallows' Day is simply another name for All Saints' Day, the day Catholics commemorate all the saints. While it takes its name from All Saints' Day, modern Halloween is actually a combination of several different traditions.

What are your traditions? I bet a lot of you are planning on Trick or Treating, dressing up and enjoying some Halloween festivities. I however don’t have any real plans. I am too old to Trick or Treat and my family already had a “Halloween Party” last weekend. We actually had so much fun playing a new board game called “Quelf” - weird name but extraordinarily exciting game. I recommend it for families who have older kids. I had to do the chicken dance and my dad had to act like an interior designer, if that gives you a small example of the awesomeness that is this game. (If you are wondering why so early, it was too accommodate my brother who is in High School now and has ‘plans’.) Yep folks your Editor has no plans whatsoever on Halloween night. Just sitting home passing out candy to the little ones and eating pizza with my mom.
