Halloween, All Hallows Eve, Samhain or whatever name it goes by for you is an important time of year for not just our children who go trick-or-treating it is also a significant and fascinating date for many (including Christians and Pagans alike). Hallowe’en and Samhain
It is widely believed that many Hallowe’en traditions have evolved from an ancient Celtic festival called Samhain which was Christianised by the early Church. Pronounced sow-in, Samhain is a Gaelic word meaning ‘end of the summer’. This festival is believed to have been a celebration of the end of the harvest, and a time of preparation for the coming winter.
