Samhain, pronounced “sow-in,” is an ancient Celtic festival that marks the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter.

Samhain represents a liminal time when the boundaries between the living and the dead were believed to be blurred.

People would light bonfires, wear costumes to disguise themselves from malevolent entities, and offer food and gifts to the otherworldly beings. As the centuries passed, Samhain evolved into the modern-day Halloween.”
