Samhain

Samhain October 31st…..

The veil has lifted.The spirits walk beside us.On this night, the Dark Goddess reaches out to us.Come,

dance in Her circle of Rebirth. Celebrate, for Life has begun anew.

Samhain has been celebrated in Britain for centuries and has its origin in  pagan Celtic traditions. It was the time of year when the veils between this world and the Otherworld were believed to be at their thinnest: when the spirits of the dead could most readily mingle with the living once again. Later, when the festival was adopted Christians, they celebrated  All Hallows Eve , followed by All Souls Day , though it still retained elements of remembering and honouring  The dead.  Many cultures have such a festival ….The Day of the Dead in Mexico is a national holiday on November 1st where families gather together to honour and remember those who have died . The festival is traced back to Aztec times.
