Here are the 5 top reasons we are celebrating...
1 - The fact that people like you and me have achieved Heaven is reason to celebrate, indeed!
2 - We are Catholic. We celebrate holidays for weeks on end. Taking three days to celebrate the idea of people achieving Heaven seems understated.
3 - My kids dress up almost daily. They beg for candy even more often. Dressing up to ask for candy seems natural.
4 - Holidays garner silly rituals even faster than they develop serious ones. Carving a pumpkin is no less trivial and fun than decorating Easter eggs.
5 - It's my birthday and that's final.
