Samhain traditionally celebrated on October 31
Exact Astrological Point November 6
The four cross-quarter days of the Wheel of the Year were considered very important by the ancient people who worked with the Wheel. Honored by many cultures as a sacred time, Samhain (pronounced Sah-win, or Sah-ween) is also known as Halloween, All Souls Night, All Hallows Eve, with the Day of the Dead, or All Souls Day following on November 1 or 2. The medieval Irish word Samhain means summer’s end. It’s celebrated as the last of three harvest festivals (Lughnasad, being the first; Autumnal Equinox, the second), as the growing season in the Northern Hemisphere comes to a close.
