All Hallow's Eve and a Look at November 2016





November 1st and 2nd  

~ All Saints Day ~ Day of the Dead ~ 


This holiday follows on the first two days immediately 

after Halloween or All Hallows' Eve.

All Saints Day is a Christian holiday to honor all saints, and

Dia de Muertos or Day of the Dead

is a Mexican holiday celebrated

by many Hispanics who live in the US, 

especially here in the southwest.

It is a day of prayer and remembrance 

of family and friends who are deceased.

Come back to visit on Tuesday

served in the United Armed Forces.

help enrich the lives of veterans.

The mission of the organization is to connect veterans with citizens 

of their communities through physical and social activities.





November 24th  ~  Thanksgiving Day

In the United States, Thanksgiving Day  

is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November.

A national holiday, it is a day when family and friends 

typically come together in thanksgiving to celebrate

the blessings of the previous year.

Are you ready for Halloween?

Mom says Miss Merri Mac will hold lots of treats,

so if you see me at your door Monday evening, 

I especially like peanut butter balls.

Just saying!

Happy Halloween Everyone!
