Halloween’s origins go as far back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. This is one of the oldest celebrations in the UK to date. The Druids and Celts the indigenous peoples of England Ireland Scotland and Wales celebrated this festival as far back as over 2,000 years ago.
Samhain all Hallows eve is actually pagan New Year’s Eve, as then our New Year’s Day was 1st November.
The Celts and Pagans believed that on New Year’s Eve the veil between the world of the living and dead became transparent and the spirits of the dead could freely roam and haunt the earth.
The celebration encompassed the start of the long dark winter and the celebration of ancestors. Huge sacred fires and costumes were worn, wine and food were drunk this was hugely celebrated and honoured festival.
It’s amazing to think we have encompassed this magical celebration generation after generation.
