A reprise of one of my favorite Barbie Tableaux from 2009! Have a Happy Halloween!!
Happy Halloween! (that’s not really what WE call it ). It’s Samhain (Samhain became the Halloween we are familiar with when Christian missionaries attempted to change the religious practices of the Celtic people. In the early centuries of the first millennium A.D., before missionaries such as St. Patrick and St. Columcille converted them to Christianity, the Celts practiced an elaborate religion through their priestly caste, the Druids, who were priests, poets, scientists and scholars all at once. As religious leaders, ritual specialists, and bearers of learning, the Druids were not unlike the very missionaries and monks who were to Christianize their people and brand them evil devil worshippers.) Have you noticed there are more of us this year????
