Now this is a feast I can sink my teeth into!
Now that the vigil is over, thank God (Oh! Did I say that out loud?)...
We love holidays, love the annual march through the calendar of the Liturgical Year. We thoroughly enjoy the traditions surrounding the change of the seasons -- and have no problem with secular holidays that have wholesome meaning. We're all over Groundhog Day, do up the hearts and flowers big-time at St. Valentine's, wave our flags on the Fourth of July, and carve pumpkins in October -- while drinking pumpkin spice latte.

on All Saints' Day last year.
(I just wanted to see her face....)
We hope everyone had a safe and fun Boo-Day yesterday, but its being a mere prelude to today's real feast, I'll skip the Halloween greetings (because it makes no sense, for instance to say "Happy Christmas Eve! Or Happy Day Before Easter!)... But we would like to wish everyone, far and near, a
Very Happy Feast of All Saints!
May the prayers of all those who see the Face of our Father in Heaven cascade down upon us all!
Let the party begin!
* If anyone is really interested on our opinion and reasons behind our opting-out-of-Halloween decision, you can read all about it (ad nauseum) here. I think I've written a post about it just about every year since I first started blogging -- that was way back in 2006-2007.... Not like its a cause or anything. Just one of those things that you can't help but need to address if you're one of very few families not posting pictures of your kids' pumpkins full of candy today. :0)
* Stay tuned for the Feast of All Souls tomorrow!
