“Halloween is Disappearing”

Halloween is disappearing, no, not from the store shelves and candy aisles but from the wide eyed faces of children.

All Hallow’s Eve was a magickal night, like no other.   Children were allowed to roam the darkness unattached to adult hands, ringing strange doorbells where monsters might lurk.

Now, too many real monsters lurk.   Man has lost the awe of the magickal, and in doing so, has lost fear of conscience, fear of reprisals in a society.   When that fear leaves, there is little fear of  consequence in cruel acts upon those to which one feels superior……usually animals and little children.

Now, our enlightened knowledge has darkened our towns and streets.   Real monsters lurk in corners and behind doorbells.   The magick of Halloween has disappeared, giving way to Trunk and Treat parties in parking lots and elementary school parties, where a cupckake, not awe, is distributed amongst the class.

I write Ghost Stories, perhaps that is my way of preserving this magick of the past.  I long for the days when a lighted turnip shone in childrens’ eyes as they waited for a passing spirit in the night…….those were the monsters of darkness, not man.

Blessings on this All Hallows’/All Saints’ Day,
