Samhain......and Happy Halloween

Good morning and a blessed Samhain to you all.

This is my offering today....using the lovely new PaperArtsy and Distress paints and PaperArtsy stamps :-)

Samhain is the ancient Pagan festival known as the End of Summer/ Feast of the Dead that since being adopted by Christianity has become known as All hallow's eve and then Halloween. It is celebrated from dusk on the 31st October to dusk on the 1st Nov.

It is a hugely important pagan festival - many pagan's adopt it as their New year and as we know it's the time when the veil between the living and the dead is at it's thinnest so they can mingle together.
Now it is often seen as a scarey, spooky time but in truth to pagans it is a celebratory occassion marked with a feast. :-)

It is a time for reflection, for welcoming new life, for wishing old life well on their next journey and for taking stock and looking to the future

So here is wishing you peace and wellness this Samhain
