"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

Halloween/Samhain

I know there's already a discussion about Halloween in another section but it's closed. So basically, if I remember well on the night of Oct. 31st the Celts believed the Dead came back to Earth and hence they dressed up as spooky creatures to show they were friends with the Spirits. In France it was very popular in the 1990s but now very few kids go tricking or treating. But I still dress for the occasion and buy treats, as well as set up the Halloween decoration.
