message 1: by Ancestral (new)

Ancestral Gaidheal (gaidheal) Have been reading Early Irish Myths and Sagas and noted in the first passage of "The Wasting Sickness of Cú Chulaind & The Only Jealousy of Emer" the reference to the thirds of Samuin. Gathering and celebration three days before, the day of, and three days after.

Is anyone able to direct me to texts which support this reference to the thirds of Samhuin?

Charlton Hall (chuckhall) | 1 comments Sounds like the 'Ides of March' thing. Possibly a Roman influence?

Robin | 2 comments I think the Glossary of Cormac mentions the sizeable nature of the Samhain festival.
