On Samnhain Night – Revisited

by duncanr

[this tale by a friend, has appeared on Madhatters before but I thought it was time for a re-telling]

The Haunted Doll

by duncanr

All Hallows Eve (aka Halloween) will soon be upon us.

Based on the Celtic Festival of Samhain – a festival marking the transition between the light and dark parts of the year, when celts believed the veil separating the dead from the living became porous, allowing the dead to cross over for a brief period of time from their world into ours – many of the ‘traditions’ surrounding Halloween have their origin in the supernatural elements of Samhain

To get you in the mood for Halloween, here’s a spooky trick to scare the bejesus outta play on your kids
