About this Entry
Most people know halloween to be a great night to go trick-or-treating, play pranks and get dressed up. Some know the meaning behind it. The day of the dead, Samhain, and All Hallow's eve probably sound familiar. They are all basically the same day, to celebrate the same thing. To celebrate our ancestors. It also helps bring in the new year for many pagan traditions, which occurs Nov 1. Samhain, halloween, is also when the third and final harvest of the season occurs. Any crops still left in the field were considered taboo. The ever popular tradition of dressing up comes from some very old superstitions. It was said that the gates between the world of the living and the dead open. The dead can then cross into our world and cause mischief. The purpose of a costume was to fool the spirits into thinking that everyone was a spirit so that no mischief would be caused. Gate Night or Devil's night are the variations of such mischief. According to pagan custom, a single candle was lit (the origin of the jack-o-lantern) and put outside the home or in a window to guide the ancestors home. A dumb supper is then held. A dumb supper is a dinner held in silence and an extra chairs and plates are put out for the unseen guests.

So there is a brief overview of the traditions and meaning of Halloween. Hope everyone enjoys their night of mischief and fun.

I recently started up a new medieval history site, and I thought I'd post it here to try and get some feedback. You can click here to visit the site. I'd really appreciate any comments or suggestions that anyone might have.

I was googling a musical group whose CD I picked up at the PA RenFaire and came across this. It's a medieval festival taking place in Fort Tryon Park (home to the ultra-awesome Cloisters museum) in NYC, and it's apparently totally free (which I suppose is good, considering transportation costs into and out of the city). It looks like they've got a nice full schedule, too. I thought that due to the actual medievalness (not Ren!) the cool (and close!) setting, and the freeness, this might be something TMT would have fun with as a group trip. It's on Sunday, October 3rd, and I may come up too, if I'm able. If leadership-types want to ask if the group is interested, it sounds like it could be fun.

Just wanted to let you guys know about a new community I've started where you can talk about medieval literature and medieval historical fiction and comparing and contrasting the two and pretty much any- and everything to do with these two subjects. Check it out at med_lit_fic

x-posted multiple places, sorry.

My name is Alex C. Telander and I was born in Spain, have Swedish nationality and am currently living in California on my way to getting citizenship. I found this community by doing a search for historical stuff, since I have a minor in history (essentially ancient & medieval history). I love the Middle Ages, the Medieval period, and LOVE Beowulf. Oh and I'm a writer working on a fantasy novel which is approaching its completion, and a historical fiction involving a historically correct (at least in my mind) Arthur in the period after the end of the Romans and the very beginning of the Middle Ages.
