halloween :: into the deep

Hello there..

It’s the season for treat or trick. I wished we celebrate it here in Singapore. I really love C-A-N-D-I-E-Sssss!!! I remember the priest wished us Happy Halloween. PUZZLED!! But, halloween has really christian roots.

The Christian Origins of Halloween:

“Halloween” is a name that means nothing by itself. It is a contraction of “All Hallows Eve,” and it designates the vigil of All Hallows Day, more commonly known today as All Saints Day.

(“Hallow,” as a noun, is an old English word for saint. As a verb, it means to make something holy or to honor it as holy.)
All Saints Day, November 1, is a Holy Day of Obligation, and both the feast and the vigil have been celebrated since the early eighth century, when they were instituted by Pope Gregory III in Rome.

According to Father, kids were encouraged to dress up as their favorite saint. Hopefully, we can emulate and be a little saintly too!! So I did a little compiling on the unknown saints… … Seriously, there are a lot.

For musicians – St Cecilia
For stomach disorders – St Timonthy and St Titus
For actors – St Genesius
For artist – St Luke, St Catharine of Bologna, Blessed Fra Angelico
For bee keepers – St Ambrose
For computers – St Isidore of Seville
(He is the saint for the internet too)
For construction workers – St Thomas the Apostle
For earaches – St Polycarp **Sounds like someone from Harry Potter Book!**
For television – St Clare
