I needed a mental break from all the writing and thinking I’ve been doing for the past couple of days and thought I would participate in ROE’s What’s Your Favorite Monday’s question. If you need a mental break or a little entertainment, click on over and see what it’s about. While your there also wander through her valley of words.
This isn’t a huge surprise as my favorite holiday is Halloween. It’s something that my children haven’t grown out of because, well I haven’t. It’s not about the candy but the traditions that I grew up with. Without going into detail, yes we did decorate. Yes, we did wear costumes. We also ate certain foods (oh all the awesome yummy foods) and held sacred the ‘between hours’. Yup, you got it Irish Samhain which my grandmother was a firm, set-in-her-ways believer. And no I didn’t dance naked and we didn’t sacrifice anything. I still hold a feast for my family (my kids look forward to it every year), we do costumes, some trick-or-treating, decorate and I tell them the same stories that my grandmother told me.
So what is your favorite holiday?
