Zenit reports that a movement in Chile, begun by Jose Miguel Carafi, to return The Eve of All Saints (Halloween) to its original meaning is gaining ground.
Children are asked to dress up in positive costumes that do not glorify death. Houses that agree to participate leave a white mark of some kind on their doors, alerting the children and guardians to visit. The children are expected to "give a grace" in exchange for sweets. The "grace" can be a prayer, a flower, a drawing, or a joke. When they call on each house they say, "Sweets for graces."
