Soul Cakes

All Hallows’ Eve from Samhain. Darkness coming.

Harvest’s end. Animals slaughtered for the winter.

Spirits of the dead transgress death’s border.

Pray to the saints. Bake soul cakes.

Lanterns and bonfires to keep ghosts away. 


More about Halloween’s past incarnations and more about the etymology of the word Halloween.
