Samhuinn. (pronounces sow-in)
November 1st in the Northern Hemisphere
1st of May in the Southern Hemisphere.
It is Samhuinn, and the season is about to change as our ancestors head into the long cold months of winter where everything around them is about to become dormant as the Goddess goes underground with her consort the Holly King to prepare for the coming of new life. Winter was considered with a mixture of anticipation and dread. Samhuinne was the last gasp of summer.
