The Meaning of Halloween

Halloween to most of us means candy, costumes, and trick -or-treating.  For New Yorkers it means one of the biggest parades of the year-hundreds of thousands of people congregate in Greenwich Village in elaborate costumes.  Hallows or Hallomas started out as a festival to honor the Crone-the wise grandmother.  Over the years it has been transformed into wicked old witches flying on broomsticks with black cats.  Even the cauldron has changed the meaning as it represented the womb of the goddess-a symbol of rebirth.  Did you know the idea of going from door to door to ask for candy and sweets actually comes from a British custom of asking for money for the poor?  In the true spirit of Halloween, let us take some time to honor our ancestors and to share their gifts with our children.  Make this Halloween a time to honor our elders-send them a card, take them out to dinner or just to say, "I love you".  Collect money, toys and food and give it to those who are less fortunate than you.  Always count you blessings!

Gayle Holmes, Marketing Director

Perfect ideas of food for those who are emotionally disturbed and facing mood swings due to some circumstances in their life. Don’t go for overeating or fasting go for healthy food like oats, milk, nuts, salmon, leafy greens, seeds and avocado which can help you in reducing stress.
