Samhain
« on: October 31, 2020, 06:24:36 PM »

To the Ladies and Gentlemen of the Religion and Ethics Forum

May I wish you all the Bright Blessings of Samhain (pronounced sa-wain) the Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and beginning of winter or "darker half" of the year.

Bright Blessings, Love and Light, and may the Old Ones watch over you and yours always
