…when the veil between the two worlds is most pervious.
This third and last of the three pagan Autumn harvest festivals acknowledges a time of cleansing and preparation for the darkness of Winter. It is the most important of the four "greater Sabbats."
Observance begins at sundown on October 31.
"Though the tenderest roses were round you,
The soul of this pitiless place
With pitiless magic has bound you~
Ah! woe ... the loss of your laugh with its lightness...
Ah! woe for your eyes and their brightness~
Ah! woe for your slippers of red."
