It’s worth remembering, though, that “Hallowe’en” means “Holy Evening” – the day before All Saint’s Day when we honour some of the best of the human race. The thousands of saints differ in many ways, but they had one thing in common; they always put the good of others as their first concern. By all means, it was good to allow our children some ghoulish fun last Monday but, for the rest of the year, let’s encourage them to follow the example of the saints. Rev Peter Hunt, St Helen’s, Oldcotes.
Pause for Thought
Hallowe'en. On Monday, children dressed as witches, and other ghastly creatures to roam our streets looking for treats.
