Broomsticks At The Ready!

Wouldn't it be great for just one day a year, to be able to make like a witch (or Harry Potter) and jump on a broomstick and fly around in the sky?

We all know that 31st October is Halloween, but it is also the start of the Gaelic festival of Samhain, marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter.  How many of those who, dressing up for Halloween and going "Trick or Treating", realise they are taking part in an ancient pagan tradition of mumming and guising

Whatever you do to celebrate the 31st October, whatever your faith, enjoy!
