WISHING EVERYONE A HAPPY HALLOWEEN AND A BLESSED SAMHAIN!

SAMHAIN: THE ANCIENT CELTIC FESTIVAL THAT SIGNIFIES THE END OF SUMMER (THE LIGHT HALF OF THE YEAR) AND BEGINNING OF  WINTER(DARK HALF OF THE YEAR) IT WAS BELIEVED THE VEIL BETWEEN THE LIVING AND  OTHER SIDE THINNED ON THIS DAY AND SPIRITS CROSSED OVER AND WALKED AMONG THE LIVING.

WHAT DOES HALLOWEEN/ SAMHAIN HAVE TO DO WITH ROMANCE YOU ASK?

Halloween was also a time, when spirits might give messages to people. In some areas, it was traditional for unmarried girls to pour molten lead into water. The shape that the lead took when it hardened was seen as a clue to the professions of their future husbands.

A traditional Scottish form of divining one’s future spouse is to carve an apple at the stroke of midnight on Halloween in one long strip, then toss the peel over one’s shoulder. The peel is believed to land in the shape of the first letter of the future spouse’s name.

Unmarried women were told that if they sat in a darkened room and gazed into a mirror on Halloween night, the face of their future husband would appear in the mirror. However, if they were destined to die before marriage, a skull would appear.

Trick or treating

The tradition of dressing in costumes and trick-or-treating may go back to the practice of “mumming” and “guising,” in which poor people would disguise themselves, not only to hide from evil spirits, but so they could go door-to-door, asking for food. Early costumes were usually disguises, often woven out of straw, he said, and sometimes people wore costumes to perform in plays or skits.

The practice may also be related to the medieval custom of “souling” in Britain and Ireland, when poor people would knock on doors on Hallowmas (Nov. 1), asking for food in exchange for prayers for the dead.

Guest blog by bestselling romance author B.J. Scott…

VIOLETTA RAND: A Splash of Romance

I’m thrilled to have bestselling author B.J. Scott here today discussing what romance is… 

Celtic

What is romance? It can mean different things depending on who is describing it. Romance can be an actual connection and the development of a relationship between two people or it can be the passion for a cause, an ideology or event.

When I looked up the definition, this is what I found:

 c.1300, a story, written or recited, of the adventures of a knight, hero, etc. tales of chivalric adventures full of marvelous incidents and heroic deeds.

A novel or other prose narrative depicting heroic or marvelous deeds, pageantry, romantic exploits, passion, love etc., usually in a historical or imaginary setting.

In traditional literary terms, ROMANCE is a narration of the extraordinary exploits of heroes, often in exotic or mysterious settings. Most of the stories of King Arthur and his knights are romances.
