An t-Samhain* is the Gaelic name for the month of November. Traditionally the Celtic New Year - the end of Summer and the beginning of the dark half of the year. It was a time to draw inwards - retreat to the fireside - a time of remembering, giving thanks and reflecting on the busy season just past. It was also a time to look forward and plan. A time of new beginnings when we can nurture and nourish those seeds that have been sown deep within ourselves, ready to be planted out when the world turns again.
Wishing you all warmth, light and love as we, in the Northern lands move into Wintertime. Blessings to all.
