The dark half of the year arrives.
Nature is largely resting.
Celebrations brighten up our modern world and are every bit as important as they were to our ancestors.
Though I fear that some may count their riches in false ways today.
This is sad...no more so than to those whose worlds are blighted by mindless consumerism.
Tonight we will welcome all that call upon us.
We have prepared boxes containing a few sweets for the children.
And a stand in soul cake for any hungry person.
I've just enjoyed mine with a lovely cup of tea.
Worth every single calorie!
We still have pumpkins to carve, and fake cobwebs to hang...I know I know...we have enough of the real ones! I just can't help myself.
