Hallowmas at Harrowgate Heath


Saturday, November 3rd, 2007

“Double, double, toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble…
…By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes.”

It began with the Celtics, who called it Samhain.

In 43 A.D. the Romans conquered the Celts, and incorporated their traditions with Samhain into a two-day celebration
known as Feralia and Pomona. In the 8th century, the Christian Church replaced the Roman celebrations for their own,
All Saint’s Day—however, two centuries later, the celebration was called All-Hallows Eve, and the day afterwards, All Souls Day.
And so together, All Saints Eve, All Saints, and All Souls were combined into the wonderful tradition of Hallowmas.

And so, come out boils and ghouls, and join the fun and spookiness
as Harrowgate Heath celebrates a period Halloween!
