All Hallow's Eve

Last evening we did not have even one trick-or-treater!! That's what we get for living on the third floor of an apartment building, right? What am I going to do with two bags of Halloween candy? *big sheepish grin*

Fritter played in his costume after dinner, and we had a quiet evening at home. It was nice. He's a little too young to go trick-or-treating yet (he can't even eat candy yet!).

This evening we are going to mass and I am going to do a little reading up on the saints. As a convert, I have had limited exposure to the lives of these great people, so today it seems appropriate to learn more.

Looking for ideas to do today? Check out Catholic Culture. They list a host of things to do with your family throughout the Liturgical Year. My favorite has to be going to the cemetery to pray for the dead. Did you know that you gain a plenary indulgence that is applied to the souls in purgatory? Another good thing to do would be to pray the Litany of Saints during family prayer time. We will be adding this to our family decade this evening. I may even try this recipe for Coffee Braid. We'll see, I kind of feel bakey today. :)

So how was your Hallowe'en? What traditions do you do with your family for All Hallow's Eve, All Saint's Day, and All Souls Day?
