Good article!You may be interested that Samhain (Samhuinn in Scots Gaelic) means "end of summer", and is the common name for November in both counties. In the old days, this also marked the New Year. Because of the shift from Julian to Gregorian calendars, this is now closer to November 11, and is the reason why that date was chosen for the end date of World War I. Consider that on what is now Veteran's Day. The old traditions never really disappear, they simply wear a new costume!
