We’ll have plenty more Samhain content between now and October 31, but in the meantime, stop by and say hi if you’re in SLC this weekend! https://www.irishinutah.com/ LEARN MORE (https://sportkilt.com/lifestyle/sport-kilt-guides/highland-guide/#highland-games-october)

Before there was Halloween, there was Samhain (SAW-win), the ancient Irish holiday when spirits re-enter the realm of the living.

Celebrated every October 31, Samhain features several traditions you might recognize – dressing up, going door to door for sweets and carving faces into gourds.

But there’s also a darker side, with shapeshifting creatures, headless bodysnatchers and wayward souls all returning to spook the daylights out of those who aren’t careful.

Which is all to say, Samhain is a scary good time.
