No to ghouls, witches and all anti Christian imagery!

Halloween is here again and the streets of towns and cities will be busy with small children (and some not so small) dressed as corpses, ghosts, witches and vampires. Nice eh? And this is a Christian feast? Time to regain some lost ground I think. I do not think that some of the 'Feast of Light' ideas voiced in the media are particularly good, whatever is done needs to be done with an element of meaning.
What are we celebrating? The forthcoming great feast of All Saints Day - an occasion for some jollity and mild carousing. So on the eve of the feast why not just make do with a few fireworks and a bonfire for younger family members while older ones can indulge in a glass of Vino Collapso!
Just make it a good Catholic party remembering Belloc's immortal words....

"Wherever a Catholic sun does shine, there is good, loud laughter and good red wine...."

All Holy Eve, light a candle and have a party - but not with satanic imagery!
