A Gaelic title for this time of year.. (if you apply Spanish phonetics the pronunciation is something like /snajza na jauna/..!) The angloamerikan festival known as “Halloween” has its origins in the Keltic celebration of An Samhain (/on saun/), the coming of the dark time of the year. And this year we have had some welcome snow to usher in the dark time, the Winter.
On the evening of October 31st we made a quick visit to Cotos on the train and were delighted to find up to 15cm of fresh snow in certain orientations. It probably won’t last long though, as heavy rain is forecast for the coming weekend. Oh well..patience, i suppose!
