Samhain became the Halloween we are familiar with when Christian missionaries attempted to change the religious practices of the Celtic people. In the early centuries of the first millennium . before missionaries such as St. Patrick and St. Columcille converted them to Christianity, the Celts practiced an elaborate religion through their priestly caste, the Druids, who were priests, poets, scientists and scholars all at once. The old beliefs associated with Samhain never died out entirely. The powerful symbolism of the traveling dead was too strong, and perhaps too basic to the human psyche, to be satisfied with the new, more abstract Catholic feast honoring saints. Recognizing that something that would subsume the original energy of Samhain was necessary, the church tried again to supplant it with a Christian feast day in the 9th century.
Day of the Dead is the twenty-fifth compilation release benefiting the Red Hot Organization, an international charity dedicated to raising funds and awareness for HIV and AIDS.
Lyrics to "Season Of The Dead" song by Black Sabbath: Phantom soldiers marching off to war Never knowing what they're fighting for Tell me what decides w. .Mystic forces on pale horses ride Bearing hunger, plague and genocide Senators of state with their prophets of hate There's no reason, it's like treason As they light the fuse no one can refuse There's no reason, it's the season of the dead. Thanks to OJTheViking for adding these lyrics.

Samhain is the traditional Wiccan Sabbat ritual, and it is held on Oct 31. It often involves taking a trance journey and "traveling" to the Isle of Apples, in the Sea of Mists, to visit with our loved ones again. Day of the Dead is a traditional Mexican celebration, and, as demonstrated above, very similar traditions exist in many cultures around the world. Many cultures believe that the dead can hear our thoughts when we are thinking of them, especially in this season. How grateful they must feel for us to be taking time to honour their contributions to our lives! And mediums, who speak for the non-corporeal people, tell us that our prayers and candles help our beloved dead to leave behind pain and sorrow, and move forward brightly in their new "lives. In any case, through our devotion to their memories, our loved ones live on in our hearts and minds, and we are enriched with our remembrance of them.
