As you raid the storecupboard tonight trying to find a few more sweets to hand out to those eager trick-or-treaters, spare a thought for where the origins of this festival lie. Halloween has its roots in Samhain, the Pagan festival which marks the spiritual new year, celebrating the dead and the cycle of life.
What ‘spiritual’ festivals do you mark and why?
>Happy Samhain to you too Sara. To me, this is the true New Years Eve – sorry it’s taken me so long to post as I have been dabbling in other things tarot related – but yes, it looks like it is going to be a prosperous one this year.
>Welcome to the blog, Magician – and a happy new year! I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the other postings too 🙂
