Summers End

But here in Australia we are starting our warm long summer days, we have changed our clocks telling us to get ready for Summer. It still has been unusually cold, with only a few nice days
So our Halloween is hardly celebrated, but I do embrace the Origins of it and find it very interesting.
Having said that here is my card for our Challenge over at MAGNOLIA DOWN UNDER so drop on over and have some fun and enter a spooky card, if you don't have a blog you can still enter by email or Facebook

Its an Easel card and check out my little Pumpkin it is five ovals punched out and stuck togeather

Just had to share some "googling" I did
Halloween is a holiday celebrated mainly in the regions of the Western world, on October 31. About 1846 Irish immigrants introduced the festival to the United States hence its popularization

Halloween’s origins are from the ancient Gaelic festival known as Samhain (pronounced sow-in or sau-an), which is derived from Old Irish and means roughly “summer’s end”. A similar festival was held by the ancient Britons and is known as Calan Gaeaf (pronounced kalan-geyf). The festival of Samhain celebrates the end of the “lighter half” of the year and beginning of the “darker half”, and is sometimes regarded as the “Celtic New Year”.

It could be seen as a festival of the dead. The ancient Gaels believed that the border between this world and the other world became thin on Samhain, allowing spirits (both harmless and harmful) to pass through. The family’s ancestors were honoured and invited home whilst harmful spirits were warded off. It is believed that the need to ward off harmful spirits led to the wearing of costumes and masks. Their purpose was to disguise oneself as a harmful spirit and thus avoid harm.

Samhain was also a time to take stock of food supplies and slaughter livestock for winter stores. Bonfires played a large part in the festivities. All other fires were doused and each home lit their hearth from the bonfire. The bones of slaughtered livestock were cast into its flames. Sometimes two bonfires would be built side-by-side, and people and their livestock would walk between them as a cleansing ritual.
