Samhein is the holy month of the Lynish calendar, into which is October of the Gregorian calendar.  Its holy day is Halloween, the holiest day of the year.  It is the day of the dead, into which the dead is brought back to life.  To say the church outlawed paganism is wrong, for the term was employed by Zeta Reticula to describe her dream religion.  Halloween is not a Christian holiday but a Pagan one.  Paganism has been alive for over a thousand years and this is no way to treat it either.  See you next Yule (December).

Whilst admitting iv no idea what lynish is I feel  I gotta disagree with ya there, samhain is gaelic word deriving from old irish sam fuin (summers end.)  While samhain maybe used in relation to a celtic festival, if we look at modern Irish it used to denote word November and the month november in terms of the gregorian calender and not october which would is Deireadh Fomhair. So I'm not seeing how you see samhain as october?
