An Irish Halloween - Stories from "Samhain" (#741)

Join us on this episode of the Letter from Ireland show as we tell some surprising stories from an Irish Halloween! Did you know that many of the rituals and traditions associated with Halloween came from the Celtic Festival of "Samhain" (pronounced "sow-en" - "sow" as pronounced in pig)?

Carina and Mike talk about the Celtic seasons and festivals, their own Irish Halloween memories - and tell two very special Irish stories linked to this time of year.

So, come on in - sit down and have a listen to these wonderful seasonal Irish tales of things that go bump in the night!

Note: This has been adapted from an earlier Halloween podcast published by Mike & Carina in 2018.
