November 11th is the day of Saint Martin. This is the night where the Halloween’s ‘trick or treat’ idea comes from. While globalization can’t keep Halloween away, in the Netherlands the kids are walking around the night of the 11th, going at each door, but not in scary costumes; they carry a lantern and have to sing a song and be nice to ask for favors (usually candy).
In its true spirit, November 11th suggests us to maintain a mentality of abundance, of appreciating what we have, and share with those who have less.
Saint Martin of Tours started out as a Roman soldier then was baptized as an adult and became a monk. It is understood that he was a kind man who led a quiet and simple life. The best known legend of his life is that he once cut his cloak in half to share with a beggar during a snowstorm, to save the beggar from dying from the cold. That night he dreamed that Jesus was wearing the half-cloak. Martin heard Jesus say to the angels, “Here is Martin, the Roman soldier who is not baptised; he has clothed me.”
So, today, ask your Angels for what your truly wish because, by the law of free will, they can only help you if you ask them!
PS – In Italy, Saint Martin’s day is traditionally the date when the casks with the new wine made that year get opened the first time, to taste how it’s turning out. Different context and culture, but also an act of sharing.
