A free Zoom program sponsored by ACGA will explore and compare folk traditions related to Oidhche Shamhna, the eve of the ancient Gaelic holiday of Samhain, across Scotland, the Isle of Man, and Ireland. The Eve of Samhain corresponds with Halloween, Oct. 31, and many of the traditions associated with Halloween in North America may have their roots in the cultures of the Gaels. Experts on the Gaelic folklore of each nation will help us see the similarities and differences between traditional ways of celebrating Samhain in Scotland, Ireland, and the Isle of Man.
