We use words like loss, ascended, pass, depart, and expire to dilute our fears, until the very end of October when we celebrate Halloween, a so.rt of "nose thumbing" to our su.cces.s.ful efforts in eluding the Grim Reaper for yet another year. All Hallows' Eve, October 31, has zts roots steeped m astronomy, just like many other common celebrations, such as Groundhog Day, February 2, and May Day May 1. They fall on what .are call .ed. cross- quarter days, the midpoints between the four seasonal markers of the stm: the winter solstice (low stm), vemai equinox (rind-sun), ! summer solstice (high sun), and the autumnal equinox (mid-sun again). The cross~cluarter day of October 31 is a fitting time to celebrate our avoidance of death. The comfortable period of warmth is well beyond us, and our focus has shifted upon the j encroaching cold of winter. Sol has rapidly moved south becoming lower in our noontime sky, lessening daylight and emphasizing the dark. Leave it to the Celts to have envisioned their harvest festival called Samhain (SAH-win), meaning summer's end, the first and most important of the cross- quarter days, and then to add a touch of the macabre. They believed that the veil separating the living from the dead thinned on Samhain, permitting the souls of the dead, ghosts, fairies, and demons to move freely in our world. Sacrifices of animals and plants were made; bonfires were lit to guide the departed along their way, and to keep the living separated from the dead. Offerings of food and drink were left outdoors to placate these netherworld beings from entering homes. The poor went door-to-door begging for food or money in exchange for songs and prayers, often said for the departed, while others dressed like the dead to avoid being recognized by roaming ghouls and drawn into their world, our modern origins of "trick or treat." The reaction of the Church was to Chrisffanize these customs which they were unsuccessful in curtailing by adding to their church calendar All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day on November 1 and 2rid. www.astronomy.org Ill III , - _ - _ _ _ ACROSS 42.

We live in Pennsylvania and have been getting The Catalina Islander mailed to us for a long time. Barclay lived on the Island back in 1950-51, and it has been a favorite Vacation spot of our whole family for many years. We did toy with the idea of also bringing our local newspaper, The Gettysburg Times, for the picture. Looking forward to many more visits in the future." iBarclay and Jacki Brooks Remember to take a copy of the Catalina Blander with you on your next trip or vacation.
