Halloween is at home! Pumpkins with lanterns inside are adorning the front side of our houses! Halloween is a light in darkness! It heralds us to enlightenment! From fall we get up fresh and energized!


Fall in Nature

Halloween reminds us the fall in nature. Autumn blues in nature tell us so many stories. Green leaves turned yellow and grey are falling reminding us the circle of nature. Rust and scarlet leaves tremble and fall telling us that we should also fall and return to the earth. But human life never ends. It continues in its rewarded life! Birds that travel southward remind us our heavenward journey!

All Saints’ Day

The word ‘Halloween’ which is the short form of the term ‘All Hallows’ Eve is actually the eve of ‘All Hallows Day’, which is now also known as ‘All Saints’ day’ or ‘All soul day’. All Saints’ Day is celebrated to honor the saints in heaven who are enjoying the eternal bliss. Most of the Christians believe that they exist in a mysterious spiritual way in the presence of God. They are our forerunners, whose lives are exemplary and encouraging for to lead our lives on this earth. They are our role models whom we seek to imitate.

All Souls Day

For me it is an annex of All Saints Day. They are expecting eternal bliss. The Catholics believe in the communion of saints. They believe that souls who have to a condition of temporal punishment for their complete purification have to wait for their bliss and that they can be helped through our prayers and penance. Traditional faith teaches about the utility of prayer for the departed.

Thanksgiving Day

It is a day to thank. Thank one and all. Thank our people at home, thank others who are around. Thank the country. Thank nature. Thank God for everything. Gratitude is the essence of human life.

Halloween is a herald of light

Halloween enlightens our minds to introspect into our lives and to live a life of hope and faith. It guides us to walk in light and “to go out to meet the bridegroom” with our lights (Matthew 25). It can be considered as “a voice shouting in the desert, preparing the way for the Lord” (Matthew 3). It leads us to a ‘happy Christmas’, paving way to the second coming of Jesus Christ!


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
