SAMHAIN: A Pagan Festival - October 2020
SAMHAIN: A Pagan Festival goes back to the original roots of Halloween
Originally a Gaelic festival, remnants of Samhain's traditions are now scattered in almost all corners of the Western world and beyond. Samhain (meaning "End of Summer") is one of four Gaelic seasonal celebrations, thought to be rooted in Celtic paganism, and most importantly, is still observed by many groups of people today, including Wiccans and other Neopagan groups.
The aim of the SAMHAIN is to offer a genuine Pagan experience, one unlikely to be found anywhere else, returning to ancient tradition and beliefs and give thanks to them, at the very same time, providing a fun experience for everyone involved, whilst dispelling any misconceptions or misinformation about the day itself.
Traditionally, some believe that SAMHAIN is a time when the veil between the spirit realm and our living world becomes thin, thin enough for both worlds to engage with each other. The Samhain we wish to bring to life is one that celebrates darkness and all things that come from it, embracing death and the idea that everything in this life moves from the physical plane to the spiritual one upon death, as well as honoring the dead, our ancestors, and our loved ones who have already journeyed to this world.
