A Strange November

All Hallows Eve, 2022

After the disruptions of the last two years, I find I'm much more appreciative of the little things in life.

I'm not even talking about sunsets or things like that, just that the grocery store has what you need in stock at any given moment - and you can even afford to buy it.

Halloween has always enjoyed a prominent place in our family, since it's just so much fun.  Thus, when the pandemic made everyone paranoid, it was a particularly heavy blow.  This year was our first "normal" Halloween since the Before Times.

It was great.  Parties, costumes, bonfires and all the things we once took for granted I am now treasuring.

I'm also more attuned to the spiritual side of the day, and look forward to attending Mass tomorrow.  I think a lot of religious people are finding renewed interest in simple things like in-person worship and partaking of both the Body and Precious Blood of Christ.

I can only hope that Thanksgiving and Christmas provide further restorations of the ancient traditions.  We need them more than ever.
