Halloween
« on: October 10, 2011, 12:25:54 pm »
So as we all know halloween is coming up. I dont know how I am going to celebrate it yet, but I am going to consider it my new year. If I were to consider Oct 31st the new year, would it be 2012? I get confused by this, and this is my first year I am celebrating Samhain, so I am little bit confused. Or would it make sense to make oct 31st the new year eve? then nov 1st starting 2012? This sounds confusing, I am trying to put it all together.
Thank you and blessed be

You're comparing apples and oranges. The Gregorian calendar (which uses 2012) begins in Jan and ends in Dec. So really, while it's a "new year" it's not by the calendar that you're using. As such it remains 2011. The Coligny calendar (which is what you're thinking) begins/end with Samhain or "Samonios".

The best thing to do is think of it as a Spiritual New Year, rather than a calendar year New Year.
