Samhain by wyldraven Samhain by wyldraven
Happy Halloween! :iconpumpkinplz:

No witches, pumpkins, cauldrons or black cats! Nope, i decided to make my picture a bit different, with one traditional aspect of the turnip lantern.

Samhain (now commonly known as Halloween) is a Gaelic festival held on October 31ľNovember 1. The Irish name Samhain is derived from Old Irish and means "summer's end". It marked the end of the harvest, the end of the "lighter half" of the year and beginning of the "darker half".

Samhain!:excited: I love the way that you presented this. The path off into the fog is so tantalizing and forbidden all at the same time. It's like the raven is there to warn those who will listen but who knows if anyone actually would. The turnip lantern is a great way to celebrate the roots of the event while still providing something familiar to the viewers, the jack-o-lantern. Thank you for sharing this!
