1900 's, the migrating Irish and Scots brought
Halloween traditions to the United States.
Bats are connected by
an ancient Samhain
ritual of building a bonfire, this drove away insects and attracted the Bats..
Remember the movie Meet me in St. Louis and the halloween shot
with Margaret O'Brien and the Bonfire .
Here's some of the Masks for 2016
The next full moon
on Halloween will
be 2020. That is a rare
night. Last one was in 2001.
to hide from the Sprits and Ghosts that roamed
on this special night. The night of Samhain. This is the night they make Turnip Lanterns lit with coal to guide the lost souls. Samhain is the Celtic new year
The Celts used the
day to mark the end
of the harvest season
and the beginning of
winter, and also
believed that this
transition between the
seasons was a bridge
to the world of the dead.
