Samhain: The Celtic Roots of Halloween
Yes, it is Halloween! that time of year when our creepy and morbid tendencies rise from the grave to both terrify and illuminate our most unusual of holidays. That time of year when Zombies and Little Bo Peep mingle effortlessly together while dancing the night away, when kids dress as the type of miniature monsters that could possibly be living under their beds... Halloween is big business. It is a fun, colourful and a bizarre celebration of the darker side to our vivid collective imagination. And like every good party, it has a story behind it.
