Yes Blue, I am reading today that Halloween is now going to be "Black and Orange Spirit Day" because "Halloween" is not inclusive. Oh my goodness.
Crazy nuts. I know Halloween comes from a pagan holiday (as do many others that got incorporated into the church calendar) but that is precisely why I like it (plus it's my birthday!). No trick or treaters come here but last year I went trick or treating in the old part of Wake Forest with my daughter & grandson. They go all out with incredible decorations. Our little one, who was then 3,was not afraid of anything & was more interested in what made things move & make noise than the candy (we only allowed him to take one piece at each house & switched it for non-dairy candy on the way home). He was a version of Dr Who & was very cute. This year he wants us to be the 3 witches.
