Wednesday, October 31 is All Hallow’s Eve. Last year we made sweets and black and gold paper chains. Shared our fudge with friends. We had a special dinner for All Saints. And made Soul Cakes for All Souls. Attending Masses, of course, and saying the usual prayers, too….
I was thinking that this year, we could have a mini party. A family party? Perhaps invite others? You, know, Catholics Give the Best Parties. I mean, why shouldn’t we laugh and have fun, even while remembering the liturgical year, after praying for All Souls , after commemorating the Feast of All Saints?
We can also pray the Litany of All Saints. ( As an aside – this was sung in Latin at Anthony’s baptism. Beautiful.)
Perhaps have some apple bobbing and a donut eating contest – maybe a barbecue followed by some sweets. Lollies. Homemade or otherwise….
