Since ancient times, late October and early November have been set aside to peek behind the veil of death and contemplate the connection between the living and the dead. It is a time when we tell ghost stories and watch scary movies. We also remember those dear to us who have died. We also revere those who have lead exemplary lives of generosity, justice, and service. And we cut loose and have fun by dressing up and indulging our fantasies of adventure and alternate lives.

In case you don’t already know the origin of Halloween, here’s how it came to be. During the Middle or Dark Ages, many people believed that a lord of death sent evil spirits into animals to play terrible tricks on people. To frighten the spirits away, they wore scary disguises, built bonfires, and sometimes even burned animals in the fires because they believed this would appease the spirits. Sometimes treats were set out in the hope that the spirits would stay away. Nowadays, we might see these beliefs as silly superstitions.
