Thus ends the 2017 Halloween Season.
I leave you with some pictures of what Halloween is like in Ireland. On October 30th, we attended the Macnas Parade in Dublin, a beautiful, magical event that ushers out the light half of the year and welcomes in the dark half.
We spent October 31st itself at a bonfire on the Hill of Ward, where Samhain has been celebrated annually for over 5,000 years. There I felt the sacred history of the holiday more strongly than ever.
Thank you all for sharing some of your autumn with me! I look forward to seeing you again in Fall 2018.
