Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Today, is All Hallows Eve or now called Halloween.

Halloween is non religious and had its origins in the festival of Samhain among the Celts of ancient Britain and Ireland.

During the Samhain festival the souls of those who had died were believed to return to visit their homes, and those who had died during the year were believed to journey to the otherworld.

One of these souls appeared to be rising in my own village, much to the fear of local people!

In ancient times, people set bonfires on hilltops for relighting their hearth fires for the winter and to frighten away evil spirits, and they sometimes wore masks and other disguises to avoid being recognised by the ghosts thought to be present. Enc. Britannica

I have no doubt that there will be many masked and hideous creatures visiting our house this evening!
Fortunately, I have a supply of chocolate bats and spiders, to keep them at bay!!!

Keep safe, Bev :-)
