Samhain

Samhain is a Gaelic harvest festival held on October 31–November 1, marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the "darker half" of the year. It is linked to festivals held around the same time in other Celtic cultures, and was popularized as the "Celtic New Year" in the late 19th century. View more
