At the risk of being thought a religious nut – not far wrong – I cannot help thinking the passage below is more helpful and uplifting that all the junk we have been subjected to since 1s October about Halloween.
“See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are. The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now; what we will be has not yet been revealed. What we do know is this: when he is revealed, we will be like him, for we will see him as he is. And all who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.”
Halloween, despite its really being the Eve of All Hallows seems to me to be summed up as “Beloved, we are the children of American commercial interests now” – except,of course, that those interests have now become world wide.
Summed up, I suppose you could say it translates as “You are good already, but you can become a good deal better”. When you read the revelations coming out of the COVID Enquiry now going on it seems our current lot of Conservative MPs were bad when elected and have got a great deal worse since then.
