Halloween, Day of the Dead, Harvest Season…Fall is here!

front-page-Oct.-18-55-(002)Contributed by Sarah Cook – Publishrer .  What is the ‘Day of the Dead’?  An annual Mexican celebration, “Día de Muertos”, or “Day of the Dead”!  It is a time when families gather to honor and remember deceased loved ones. It is believed that the souls of the dead return to visit the living families in homes, businesses and cemeteries.

 
This is a joyful festivity for families and the community of Mexico and many other countries, that so choose to celebrate.  October 28th is the day of the Accidentados, those souls that died in accidents. On October 31st they honor the souls of children, called los angelitos. On November 1st, they remember the spirits of adults. The spirits are believed to depart the following day, November 2nd.

 
As we head into our ‘Fall season’, to gather our families and friends, we find ourselves planning our cycle of seasons and life with parties and get-togethers, a rekindling of spirits. (pun intended).  Depending on how you like to celebrate the new Fall season, it’s always a season of Family, Food and Fun.

 
Halloween night, Cabbagetown is filled with wonderfully spooky haunted houses, many little ghouls and goblins running from house to house, even some store fronts get involved in the fun.  Fall has so much to offer and I sincerely hope you enjoy all the wonderful editorial inside the pages of this SCARY issue…Halloween in Cabbagetown, the best place to be!

 
If you’re still celebrating on Saturday November 3rd- don’t forget to “FALL BACK” and change your clocks back an hour before you say goodnight and get that ‘extra hour of sleep’…aaahhhh!
