In ancient Ireland, the year began and ended in darkness, just as all things begin and end in darkness: our own lives, the life of our sun, the life of all the worlds. The festival of Samhain marked the beginning of the dark half of the year. The last fruit was on the Blackthorn, the Hawthorn, and the Rowan. What root crops remained in the ground and what grains remained in the field were a tithe to the Otherworld. So were the bones of Deer and Cattle thrown on the great fires atop the high hills. It was the time of the last harvest, and the time when the ancestors were close at hand. Join Seán for an ancient exploration of this festival and ways of marking it in the contemporary world.
