Origins of Halloween – Melynda Price (31 Days of Halloween)

Halloween—an ancient tradition steeped in history
and superstition that is still celebrated today. Have you ever wondered why we
dress our children in costumes and walk them door to door in search of candy?
The answer might surprise you…
Halloween’s origins date back 2,000 years ago to the
ancient Celtic festival of Samhain.On Halloween, when it was believed that
ghosts came back to the earthly world, people thought they would encounter
ghosts if they left their homes. To avoid being recognized
by these ghosts, people would wear masks when they left their homes after dark
so that the ghosts would mistake them for fellow spirits. On Halloween, to keep
ghosts away from their houses, people would place bowls of food outside their
homes to appease the ghosts and prevent them from attempting to enter.
Have a safe and fun Halloween everyone!

A forbidden love… Eternal consequences…

strangers, Max and Liam, step into her life. Olivia soon discovers that
her ‘Mr. Perfect’ is actually a perfect nightmare.

The rules of engagement have changed and
Liam, Olivia’s guardian angel, is forced to cross dimensional borders or risk
losing the woman he’s sworn to protect. Suddenly, thrust into a world unlike
anything he’s ever known, Liam isn’t prepared to come face to face with the
young woman whose life he holds in his hands.
But nothing is as it seems, and secrets
abound that will ultimately force him to choose between two impossibilities.
Max will stop at nothing to finish what he’s started, and Olivia is soon
plunged into a battle between good and evil. Her very life hangs in the balance
as two forces fight to win her heart.
