Month of October
Oct. is of month honoring and celebrating. Every year, many celebrate Halloween, every year we honor Breast Cancer Survivors and Hispanic Heritage Month (which trickles in from September).
Back story of Halloween courtesy of History.com- Evolving from the ancient Celtic holiday of Samhain, modern Halloween has become less about literal ghosts and ghouls and more about costumes and candy. The Celts used the day to mark the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter, and also believed that this transition between the seasons was a bridge to the world of the dead. Over the millennia the holiday transitioned from a somber pagan ritual to a day of merriment, costumes, parades and sweet treats for children and adults.
Do I celebrate Halloween? Not since my Naughty school girl costume back in high school! I do love getting adorable pictures from of my baby cousins all ready to go Trick-or-Treating! Can’t wait for this year’s batch of pics! And if there’s a Halloween party, I’d definitely go. But be warned: I’d probably be the one dressed in all black with a shirt that reads “Costume.” *Hehe*
September 15th to October 15th is the time of paying tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our (USA) nation and society.
