Samhain is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the “darker half” of the year. Traditionally, it is celebrated from 31 October to 1 November, as the Celtic day began and ended at sunset. This is about halfway between the autumn equinox and the winter solstice.Wikipedia

Samhain is an intrinsically bound to the blood and soil memory of the Celto-Germanic stock who settled Vermont in its early years. Upon the altar of life there also lies the altar of death. Reincarnation is reflected in Midgards seasonal changes, the weather, and the passage of time.
Samhain is a state of being where a trance-like state brings you back to commune with both posterity not yet born and forebears long since gone. Therein lies the vital importance of burial mounds, graves, and holding onto the bones or even ashes of ones deceased. The memory of the dead lives on in the hearts, minds, and bodies of their living blood kin.
Samhain is not a Halloween sugar infused stupor, nay it is a time of lovemaking/merriment/procreation, death/embracing fear, Ginnungagap, and joyous defince against the forces of Muspelheim’s nithlings.
The finite lies with the known, seen, heard, and civilized/Innangard. Whilst the infinte chaos lies beyond in the depths of the unknown, unseen, unheard, and barbaric/Utangard. New knowledge or new inventions or created from tapping into the primordial Ginnungagp which lies both before and after everything in an endless Jormungadr/Ouroboros cycle.
