Remember the 5th of November


Recommended Posts

5th November fake anyway. A christian attempt to whitewash and de-paganise the original festival of Samhain. When I was a kid it was all about eating black food (parkin, black peas) and a burning man

Are you sure you're not confusing with Halloween ?

5th of November has a very specific association with Guy Fawkes etc,  no?

The festival of Samhain (gaelic word I think pronounced sow-wayne) was the end of the agricultural year. Hence the association with death i.e. the crops have been reaped/harvested. Many cultures have "day of the dead" and "all saints day" equivalents.

As is well known the christianisation of the UK was unable to stamp out the old traditional festivals. Instead they reskinned them into sanitised versions hence fakery such as guy fawkes, halloween, and similar relatively modern stuff.

It basically marks the sun's geocentric move into the sign of Scorpio, one of the ancient Calendar Beasts. Traditionally a time when the veil between life and death is thinnest therefore a time for communicating with dead ancestors and spooky stuff of that nature.

Indeed - I live near a large cemetery, and last Sunday was the day in the year when it’s chockablock with Portuguese(mainly) paying respects to their dead.
