Samhain

Now known as Halloween this is the time to go a bit mad,release your Id and see where it leads. Its the time to celebrate the dead who have come back to party with us. Don’t leave them out as you’ll soon be one of them.

Samhain comes with the setting sun on the 31st of October.This is the start of the dark half of the year. It is time of reckoning when things are counted. It is a time of disturbance, things are shaken up and strange things can happen before they settle down again. Strangers come and go in the dark. people cover their faces with masks. A knock come on the door and everyone wonders who it might be. This evening the dead are about walking to the otherworld. We scare them away with ugly faces so they can leave this world and join the next.
