Are you ready to engage in your fear? Now that summer is over, it is time to celebrate the fall and with the fall comes one of our favourite holidays. Next to Christmas, people look forward to Halloween the most. After all, what’s not to love? You get to dress up, eat candy, watch scary shows, and sometimes enjoy freaky carnivals.
Here in Calgary, we are blessed with having the whole month of October to celebrate with festive frivolity. The people of Cowtown have a strong sense of fun and we like to create a safe space where we can embrace the wild joy we get from our own fears of the unknown. And the best way to embrace your fears is to celebrate them. But the question is, how are we celebrating it this year? Here are a few suggestions on what to check out.
Who knew that the ancient Celtic festival called Samhain (pronounced “SAH-win”) would grow into what we celebrate as Halloween today? For centuries, the world has celebrated this holiday by carving pumpkins, trick-or-treating, and wearing scary costumes. Sure, we are sad to see our warm summers go but we have fabulous times like All Hallows Eve to look forward to. The things that we normally fear don’t bother us as much. If only this fun, fabulous, and fearless holiday could last us for all our days. If not to make us less frightened but to have all the candy we can eat.
