All Saints' Eve
The little goblins, princesses and Ninjas that came to our door probably know little about the importance of a good fall harvest. They are not particularly bothered by the shortening days, nor worried about how to light the longs nights ahead. They will not gather around a bon fire at the edge of their village and make a celebration to the gods and good fortune that brought them food to put up for the winter. They will not look out into the very dark night and fear that they might freeze or starve before the spring. I have many small bags of M&M's left. I have only some ornamental climbing beans from my garden to show for my ability to feed myself off the land.
