Titera’s Tidbit: Halloween
Origin of the word Halloween is Christian, but the holiday is commonly thought to have pagan roots. It’s typically linked to the Celtic festival of Samhain, which comes from the Old Irish for “summer’s end”. Samhain was the first of the four quarter days in the medieval Gaelic calendar. It was held on or about October 31–November 1 and kindred festivals were held at the same time of year in other Celtic lands. Samhain is mentioned in some of the earliest Irish literature and many important events in Irish mythology happen or begin on Samhain. It marked the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the ‘darker half’ of the year. In much of the Gaelic world, bonfires were lit and there were rituals involving them.
