Holidays

Halloween


How did Halloween begin? The holiday traces back to the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain. The ancient Celts from Britain and Ireland observed the start of the new year on November 1, All Souls Day. The day marked the end of summer and the harvest. Folks came to believe that on October 31, the worlds of the living and dead overlapped before the start of the new year. October 31 became All Hallows Eve, a time where the ghosts of the dead could return to destroy the harvest that was stored for winter. People set bonfires on hilltops to ward off the evil spirits before the start of the winter season.

St. Patrick's Day


St. Patrick’s Day (17 Mar.) is Ireland’s national holiday. St. Patrick is the nation’s patron saint. He is credited with introducing Christianity to the Irish. St. Patrick’s Day features street parades in every city. The largest is in Dublin. In honor of St. Patrick, the Irish wear shamrocks (St. Patrick used the shamrock to remind people of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit) and organize big feasts. Of course, people outside Ireland celebrate St. Patrick’s Day as well.
