  1. I have never heard of Samhain. Sounds like our Halloween. Thanks for sharing.
    From wikipedia:
    Samhain (pronounced /ˈsɑːwɪn/ SAH-win or /ˈsaʊ.ɪn/ SOW-in, Irish pronunciation: [sˠaunʲ]) is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the “darker half” of the year.
