Day-Dreaming New Visions: Ognissanti & Il Giorno dei Morti

Tribal Realities is about going back to our roots, re-contextualizing tradition in new shapes. Going back to our inner core vibes. Having said that, I wanna tell you about...All Saints' Day aka the Solemnity of All Saints aka All Hallows or Hallowmas aka Festum Omnium Sanctorum aka Ognissanti!

This is the right time to Pray, Meditate, Day-Dream and Receive the Vision.

Indeed, in these days, Italy is celebrating:  
(1)[Festum Omnium Sanctorum ] Ognissanti (All Saints) on Novemeber1 --> commemorating all those who have attained the beatific vision in Heaven
(2)[Commemoratio Omnium Fidelium Defunctorum] Commemorazione dei Defunti (All Souls' Day) on Novemeber2 --> specifically commemorates the departed faithful who have not yet been purified and reached heaven.
Regardless of religious beliefs, these events are part of a strong tradition, deeply rooted into the ancient culture of Italy... going back to Pagan Rituals, the Byzantine Tradition, Latin Rites and the Celtic Samhain...

We call it Il Giorno dei Morti
Believe it or not, this Holy Day is an opportunity to meet again.
In this special night the Spirits of the Deads come back home bringing presents to You All.
Welcome Them All. Set the table and cook delicous food for them. They must be tired for the long jouney, uh?
Offer fresh water. Gorgeous Flowers. Offer them the traditional sweets "Ossa dei Morti" (bones of the dead) & "Frutta Martorana". Celebrate!


The Giorno dei Morti is like the Twilight.
Twilight. The Twin Light Makes The Worlds Collide in One Single Vibe.

En-Joy Your Life!
