Tonight, we light the candles to shine light on the history of Halloween, and its origins in the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain.
We'll discuss the common ground between many cultural celebrations, similar to those we know, and look at the modern celebration, and the anti-Halloween movement that has sprung up in response to Christian fears surrounding the holiday.
Music will be from Damh the Bard, Sharon Knight, and Lisa Thiel.
For further research, you might enjoy reading a couple of articles by Isaac Bonewits:"The Real Origins of Halloween" (http://www.neopagan.net/Halloween-Origins.html) and "Halloween Errors and Lies" (http://www.neopagan.net/Halloween-Lies.html).
