Orange Coast CUUPs will hold its Samhain/Halloween celebration on Saturday, October 23rd. The ritual will be at the OCUUC church. Arrive at 6pm for a 6:30 start.
Samhain (summer’s end) marks the end of the crop harvest, the end of the light for the year and the beginning of the dark time of the Celtic year. On this night, the veil that separates the living from the dead is the thinnest. It is still the custom in some areas to set a place for the dead at the Samhain feast, and to tell tales of the ancestors on that night. Thus, we celebrate the lives of those who have passed on, by paying respect to loved ones who have died.
