I couldn’t resist posting “This is Halloween” from “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” It’s a great reminder of the fun (and even the necessity) to feel a little scared from time to time. Samhain is a good holiday to reflect on our fears, especially those associated with death and the denizens of the Otherworlds. While there are some who should be avoided and respectfully distanced, most are just part of life. Spirits of death and decay are really just psychopomps to another state of being. Samhain, while a somber occasion to remember our departed loved ones, is an excellent time to celebrate life and take solace in the humbling fact that we’re all going to die – we might as well have some fun while we can!
