A Traditional New Years, one of many
Original post made by Hal, another community, on Oct 28, 2010
As we approach the ancient Celtic news years celebration that is the origins of Halloween, let's wish all your readers happy new year.
As we have noted, there are many new year's celebrations from September to April, but this celebration of our ancestors, our heritage, our year's harvest and the darkness that will bring a new spring seems to have a special place in our region's neighborhoods. It celebrates the end of summer, the coming of Yule Tide and related religious holidays, and a time to refresh ourselves for a new year.
Happy New Year,
