How do you celebrate Halloween in community?

Do those in community have Halloween celebrations? In the UK in the Celtic tradition, we celebrate Samhain and gather for ancestors feasts. This involves building an ancestors’ altar, telling stories of our ancestors around the fire and sharing their favourite foods. This year will be particularly poignant celebration as I welcome both my mum and little dog who have died since the last ancestors feast.

I know that Wild Sage and Silver Sage, an intergenerational cohousing community and a senior cohousing community here in one of The States, who are located across the road from each other, celebrate Halloween together in the typical American style of the children from Wild Sage trick-or-treating at all the houses in the community, and then going across the road to trick-or-treat at the senior community, bringing their youthful cheer and adorable costumes from unit to unit for all to enjoy.
