Yes, it’s that time of year again and ‘Love’ it or ‘Loathe’ it, (we are firmly in the ‘LOVE’ it camp) it’s HALLOWEEN ARE YOU READY
This is a festival I grew up celebrating every year, known as ‘Samhain’ the Celtic New Year, marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter. Traditionally celebrated from 31 October to 1 November, as the Celtic day began and ended at sunset.
It is mentioned in some of the earliest Irish literature, and the Megalithic passage tombs in Ireland are aligned with the sunrise around the time of Samhain.
The tombs of Newgrange, Knowth, Dowth, Fourknocks, Loughcrew and Tara are located in the present day County Meath in Ireland’s Ancient East.
The Boyne Valley Mounds at Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth were built around 3200BC making them older than Stonehenge in England and the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt.
Anyway! back to Halloween and whether you are ready?
