Samhain Celebration, oct. 25, 10pm-12 [GR]

Samhain (/ˈsɑːwɪn/, /ˈsaʊ.ɪn/, or /ˈsaʊn/) is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the "darker half" of the year. It is celebrated from sunset October 31st - sunset November 1st. Along with Imbolc, Beltane and Lughnasadh it makes up the four Gaelic seasonal festivals. It was observed in Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man.



Come celebrate the end of the harvest season, the beginning of winter and the thinning of the veil between the living and the dead in the traditional--or anyway you wish--way, with Kaitlin on the evening of October 25th in O'Cleary's pub.

Miniature bonfires will be cheerily a lit in the out door courtyard, while the Pub will be decorated with a mix of old and new decorations to both welcome those familiar with Samhain and All Hallows' Eve or Halloween. Carved Jack O'Lanterns in pumpkins and turnips dotted many areas inside and outside of the bar, patrons are welcome to come in costume to confuse the spirits--or simply to enjoy the frivolity with one another! There will be food a-plenty and drink specials for the duration of the event.

Candies for those familiar with them can be nabbed from the line of grinning jack 'o lanterns on the bar for those not too old for trick-or-treating themselves.
