Happy Halloween, Samhain
Samhain is the Celtic New Year and the 3rd Harvest. It is associated with the Ogham, Blackthorn, which represents the dark half of the year and is a hearty wood used to make walking sticks. It is a fire festival where bonfires are built to welcome returning ancestors from beyond the veil. The Crystals of Samhain are Carnelian (orange) and Amethyst (purple), the colours of Samhain. It is time to prepare for the rebirth of Yule.
