Archive for October, 2011

Before there was Halloween there was All Hallows Eve, and before that All Souls Night, and before that… Samhain, celebrated by Gaels as the end of harvest season and a time to begin slaughtering livestock, thus a time to think on death and the dead. It also represents the time of transition from light to darkness, falling about a month after the equinox, when the days are noticeably shorter than nights.
