Halloween Wisdom

The Owl

The Owl is not only the unofficial Halloween mascot,but also the symbol of wisdom. Both these symbolic uses go back in history but the wisdom “usage” is the oldest. The 3,500 year old Greek city state of Athens, where scholastics were revered, not surprisingly held goddess Athena, the goddess of wisdom,  as their patron. Athena’s symbol was the owl.
