I love the month of October the weather is breathtaking, there is a nice breeze that’s not too hot and not too cold. Still the most significant part of the month is we get to celebrate Halloween! The name Halloween has been shortened from “All Hallows” this is simply another name for “All Saints” the day Catholics honor all the saints.
In the Celtic roots there is “ Samhain” which is celebrated on October 31st.. They believed the world of the dead is able to mingle with the living during the Samhain. Bobbing for apples comes from the Celtic. In their tradition apples are associated with love. During wedding receptions unmarried people try to bite into an apple floating in water or hanging on a string. The first person to get the apple is the next to marry. ( I ‘d rather just catch the bouquet)
