’Tis the season to honor those whose shoulders we stand on

In my fantasy world this Halloween, I will follow the ancient All Hallow’s Eve tradition of honoring the deceased whose presence surrounds me in a miasma of fog and in the bright light of achievement. This medieval tradition, which some trace to Celtic origins, celebrates the night, Oct. 31, as the night before the day or days (some celebrate a three-day holiday, particularly in Mexico) when the deceased are recalled and honored, often at temporary altars. My focus is on our Fresno community and on the broader region.
