superstitions n celebrations

With the approach of Hallowe'en or All Hallows also known as Samhain, it seems appropriate to write about superstitions.
One friend dislikes the colour green because to her it's an 'inauspicious' bad-luck colour. So, today, not wanting to cause any unhappiness, I changed out of my green jumper and put on a cerise coloured one before visiting.
Another of her superstitions concerns doorways and entrances to her home. Whichever doorway you enter by, you must leave the same way, or else be followed by bad luck.

 "For all the saints, who from their labors rest,
Who Thee by faith before the world confessed,
Thy Name, O Jesus, be forever blessed.
Alleluia, Alleluia!
"

November 1st is the Feast of All Saints.
A time to remember the lives and sacrifices of saints and martyrs.
