All Hallows. Part-One.


All Hallows or Halloween has always been a big event in Ireland, even though Christianity has enveloped it. October 31st.

Many new features have been added from the U.S., like the toffee apples and the pumpkin. But essentially everything else is the same, with black men and trick n’ treating.

But the origins of this festival goes back to Celtic times, when like other northern European people this was the New Year. The festival was the celebration of cattle purification through fire, while a gate portal was believed open between the dead and the living. A chance for dead ancestors to visit their living relatives.

Some of this Celtic religion is now adapted and employed in to modern witchcraft or Wicca and so there are darker elements at work.  Leviticus 19:31,  Galatians 5:19-21.
