Samhain

Originally, Halloween was known as Samhain by the ancient Celts. Today, there are still people who celebrate Samhain on Halloween. To Wiccans, Pagans, and Druids Samhain is their most sacred holiday because it is a celebration of the dead. With the coldest part of the year upon them, they celebrate this evening with dances around a bonfire welcoming the spirits of the deceased into their circle. The spirits don’t have to come, but they are welcomed. Samhain for these people is the start of a new year for them. To all those who celebrate Samhain, I wish you a blessed and happy celebration.
