This is the day that God has made—let us exult and rejoice on it. Psalms, 118:24
Celebrations and holidays are the exclamation points of our lives. On birthdays, we recognize the joy that family members and friends have brought us. On Thanksgiving, we reflect on our blessings. On Passover we recount the wondrous Exodus of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt. Weddings invite us to rejoice in the potential of the future. Let’s fill our celebrations and holidays with greater meaning and purpose so that we can enrich our lives with deeper connections and enduring memories.
Want to put some Jewish flavor in grandkids’ favorite day? Halloween. It’s not just about candy. It’s also about neighborhood gatherings, carving pumpkins, school parades, and decorating outside and in with ghosts, goblins, and cobwebs.
