Celta Thursday: Halloween/Samhain
Then they were at the door and snaked with the mass of people through the entry hall of RoundDome Temple. They passed through the corridor that encircled the temple and into the main sacred space. It was decorated in brown and black and orange and red and yellow, autumn's colors.
They followed the couple before them along the circle inscribed in the floor and ended up in the northeast quadrant. The doors closed a couple of minutes later and the main priestess and priest in the city entered, dressed in costume as the autumn lord and lady, leaves in their hair. There was a great shout.
The Halloween ritual was upbeat and fun and ended with a spiral dance. She didn’t even mind the fact that she was hand-in-hand with Asant and a stranger. Asant's energy was high and mischievous, adding to the general atmosphere in the temple.
As they wound back to their original places, Genista found herself laughing with all the rest, and it was a good release. The flatsweets passed out at the end of the ceremony were excellent.
