Samhain is an ancient Irish festival which is now celebrated on October 31st (Oíche Shamhna) . It is a time of decay, letting go and releasing the old to die in order to be transformed. It was believed that Samhain was a time when the boundary between this world and the Otherworld grew thin and the dead could return to where they had once lived. Rituals associated with this festival involved providing hospitality for dead ancestors. Food and drink were put out for the dead with great ceremony while windows, doors and gates were unlocked to give the dead free passage into their homes. As the two worlds collided ghosts, demons, and witches were also released from the underworld. To ensure that all evil spirits were kept at bay people lit bonfires to protect themselves from harm.
