Happy Halloween!! Did you know the origin of Halloween can be traced to an ancient pagan festival celebrated by Celtic people over 2,000 years ago? … it’s been said the Celts believed that at this time the dead could walk among the living and the living could visit with the dead. Not sure where to go with that but found it perfect for a Halloween moment, lol.
Meanwhile, as I prepare my little “Superhero Dinosaur” and my “Handy Manny” for a night out of trick-or-treating this small bit of trivia reminded me of some awesome folklore I came across in my travels through Australia years before my life was filled with Peppa Pig and Mike the Knight.
Above is a page from one of my sketchbooks while walking the trails in Kakadu National Park with a geologist from the NY Preservation Society, (an experience beyond words and forever in my heart). Have a good one! – Michele
