For many of us, Halloween is as much of an event as Christmas. For me, the feelings this time of year conjure up are fantastic, legends and myths abound, and stories of the past beg to be read. I love the dark, moon, colder weather and fires, all of these together make autumn, and Halloween very special.
The commercial side of Halloween is not for me though, pumpkin carving, dressing up and trick or treating luckily passed me by when I was young, and now I see Halloween has become a money-making opportunity for shops as much as Valentine's Day. I will however be doing my own celebrating, remembering the 'proper' Samhain from my pagan roots and will be indulging in lovely wintry food tomorrow night.
Happy hauntings everyone.
