Do Rational Hedonists (with ancient Greek philosophical roots)
Hedonism is all about enjoying the pleasures of life! What's not fun about:
the Smell of Autumn,
Beautiful Days, and
Candy, Candy, Candy?
It doesn't matter if you call your Fall Fest "Halloween", "Samhain", or "Harvest Festival", what's important is taking time to breathe it in, take part, enjoy the sights, sounds, and tastes of October!
Seriously, folks ....
The "Rational" part of "Rational Hedonism" is about thinking for yourself, making your own decisions. Most intelligent people can separate themselves from good-natured, creepy fun, and ancient, superstitious practices and medieval paranoia, along with a generous sprinkle of Roman Catholic presto-chango "what-was-good-is-now-evil ...poof" fairy dust that suddenly made Halloween a Gateway to Hellfire and Damnation.
Lighten up, folks.
Regardless of how or why it started way back when, or what it might represent to whom, what it is now is a time of Fun!
