All Hallows Eve

October 31st

This is the beginning of the Celtic New Year. Samhain is Irish-Gaelic for 'the Summer's end', and is pronounced 'sow-in'.

This festival celebrates Nature's cycle of death and renewal, a time when the Celts acknowledged the beginning and ending of all things in life and nature. Samhain marked the end of harvest and the beginning of the New Celtic Year. The first month of the Celtic year was Samonios - ‘Seed Fall’.

It's the day that past memories meet the hopes of the future. It is a time to plant the seeds of new projects, allowing them to germinate over the winter months.

It is also considered the time to end old projects and to generally take stock of one's life. Samhain allows you to come to terms with your past year and leave all mistakes and regrets behind you, in order to move on.

Look forward to what the future holds.Use the magic of this time to say good-bye to a bad habit or addiction, an old relationship, or anything else negative in your life - Samhain is the night to leave it all behind.
