Samhain Origins & Traditions

exploring the closing harvest celebrations ... next session Sunday 31st October 2021

about this afternoon session ...

How and where did the celebrations of Samhain, and later Halloween, originate?

Overall, this Sunday Session will tune in to the whole root of this time, the celebration of harvest gathered, the sharing, and the preparing for quiet weaving winter time through winter into Imbolc and the spring awakening. 

This Sunday Session will explore how we 'play' this time with stories and traditions from the Hill of Tlachtga and Hill of Tara in Co. Meath, Emin Macha in Armagh, plus looking at the Scottish Guisers and other Scottish Samhain traditions, English Bonfire Night and it's 'Guy' older than Guy Fawkes and, of course, 'Trick Or Treat' and the modern tradition of garden graveyards.
