For the Celtic people, Samhain was the most important celebration of the year, it was a sacred holiday, marking the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new one. It was a moment of transition in the year, marked by the shedding of the old and inviting in the new, a powerful moment of rebirth. Of all the Celtic celebrations, Samhain was the most alchemical one, it was an opportunity to purify our energy with the energy of the fire element and transform our shadows.
