Annually on October 31
This holiday is one of the Greater Sabbats, marking the end of summer and awaiting the Mother Goddess at Yule.
Samhain (like Beltane) was seen as a time when the 'door' to the Otherworld opened enough for the souls of the dead, and other beings such as fairies, to come into our world. The souls of the dead were said to revisit their homes on Samhain.
