Halloween/Samhain/Dia de Los Muertos/Feast of the Dead

Whatever you prefer to call it, the Place and Time between the Worlds has always been one of my favorite times of the Yearly Cycle, alongside Christmas, Easter and St. Patrick's Day as a time of intense Magical feeling. Here is a collection of sites on various aspects of this special season, including one article on the Iroquois tradition of the Feast of the Dead, described as falling anywhere between October 27 and October 29, usually every ten years. So, check out this little collection of links, and repair to your favorite Halloween party, Samhain ritual, graveside vigil, or Séisiún na Samhna...
