Halloween Origins

Linking back to my original post as blogger did not like me reposting my own originally posted words!

So if you are looking for 
The origins of Halloween,  Roman festivals of harvest, Celtic festival of Samhain (pronounced sow-an or sow-in)

All Saints Day, or All Hallows or Hallowmas

The Day of the Dead (Día de los Difuntos or Día de los Muertos)


My  little trio of holiday flags, given as an October gift.  

Michele Bilyeu Creates With Heart and Hands as she shares her imaginative, magical, and healing journey from Alaska to Oregon. Creating, designing, sewing, quilting, and wildcrafting... from my heart and with my hands.


  1. I so enjoyed reading this!!Thank you for sharing such wisdom! I recently learned through Ancestry that I am 80% Irish which has led me down an entire new rabbit hole. Planning to grab a pen and paper soon and take some notes here!!

    1. Wow! 80% is quite amazing! Well worth a deep dive into a genealogical rabbit hole for sure! It's fascinating stuff really!
