Traditionally, All hallow's eve was a pagan holiday to celebrate the dead. It is said that the veil to the spirit world is at its weakest, which allows you to communicate with your deceased loved ones. Since being on base i have realized that a lot of people don't celebrate or know the true meaning of Halloween. Most american's associate it with costumes and buckets of candy. Not really knowing it's true meaning, they dress up there children as Batman and princesses, and follow behind them as they walk around the neighborhood collecting goodies. Whether you believe in ghost or simply choose not to acknowledge them, there is no better excuse for you child to dress up as there favorite super hero or character than Halloween!!!
