Halloween is Here!
With the threat of Covid-19, trick-or-treating may not be safe this year and kids should stay home,
People believe that during the night of October 31st and November 1st the barrier between the realm of the spirits and the real world grows weak.This allows the dead to return to earth for one night only!!!
Most agree that Halloween as we know it started some 2,000 years ago when Celtic people in Europe celebrated the end of the harvest and the start of a new year in a festival called Samhain (pronounced “sow-win”). It was also a time of communing with otherworldly spirits, with big bonfires lit in honour of the dead.
Ireland is the birthplace of Halloween. Its origins are considered to be the Hill of Ward in Co. Meath.
It is celebrated with music, myth, fire, & folklore to light up the dark while the veil between the worlds of the living and the dead thins.
