Samhain is both an ancient Celtic holiday and in the Celtic calender it is the month that falls around November. It marks the beginning of the Celtic year and the beginning of winter, the dying time. A time we must all march through every year reminding us of our mortality and the winter that comes to our own lives. It is a march through a barren land where the distant light of Spring's promise is not visible to the eye but can be seen by our hearts alone. It is a march to be made bravely and without trembling. It is Samhain's March.
