Samhain is a festival at the end of the harvest season in Gaelic and
Brythonic
cultures, with aspects of a Festival of the Dead. It is the beginning of
the
Celtic year.

Nov 6,'08 7:04 PM CST the earth crossed the plane half way between the
Autumnal Equinox and the Winter Solstice.

The celebration of New Year itself may have taken place during the
beginning
of the lunar cycle which fell nearest to the midpoint between the
autumnal
equinox and the winter solstice (closest full moon will be 11/13/08). 

According to Celtic lore, Samhain is a time when the boundaries between
the
world of the living and the world of the dead become thinner, allowing
spirits
and other supernatural entities to pass between the worlds to socialize
with
humans. It is the time of the year when ancestors and other departed
souls are
especially honored. A door or window may be opened to the west and the
beloved
dead specifically invited to attend. Many leave a candle or other light
burning in a western window to guide the dead home.

Samhain often involves paying respect to ancestors, family members,
elders of
the faith, friends, pets and other loved ones who have died.
