Bonfire on hilltop to celebrate Samhain

Article in the World Chronicles, October 5017 ~

This Samhain festival of October 5017 will bring back many original traditions from the ancient celebration. The growth we see every year in the number of people who honor this festival worldwide is phenomenal. Since humanity returned to the old ways over two-hundred years ago, peace has reigned throughout the world.

The Samhain festival marks the end of the summer months and the beginning of winter. With the harvest season ending there is an abundance of foods in every household worldwide. With home canning and preservation, no one will go hungry in the dark half of the year. The Share and Trade Food Warehouses are now open in every city.

Once again we will see bonfires on hilltops in every major city. Young boys are already going to every household with their horse-drawn wagons to collect any donations of burning material for the bonfires. Singing, dancing and traditional rituals will be a joy for all.  Sowans (little cakes with charms in them for good luck and fortune) will be passed out to the crowds.

When the Samhain festival is over, people will be taking home a torch from the bonfire to light the fire in their home hearth. This is an ancient custom to spiritually bring together and bond all people in the community as one in love and peace.

For those unable to attend the bonfire celebrations, there will be a Snap-Apple Night at community halls where divination rituals and games will be played. We hope you all enjoy the Samhain festivals and gatherings.

Don’t forget that next month is World Poetry Month. This year all poetry related events will be hosted by descendants of The Creative Exiles Poetry Foundation. The Creative Exiles was established in March of 2016 and gave us some of our most famous and beloved poets of all time. Keep your WICs tuned in so as not to miss this wonderful tribute to poets of the distant past. Reproductions of their first book is now available at Amazon.

I have always liked to write.It is important to me that I write with spirit and heart. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions. Thank you for visiting.

    And so it may be, the technological era behind us and back to the basics of life, in many ways better. A very creative idea and lets hope our little site can survive all that. Great work Phyllis. May our descendants appreciate our words and expression.

    Thank you, Tony. I believe our descendants will appreciate our works. And I believe there will be far better technology that will help humanity in ways we have not even thought about yet, mixed with the return to old ways. So pleased you enjoyed my journey into the future. Take care.

    The future holds many surprises for our descendants Phyllis. We, like our brothers and sisters from the past we will be among them, our legacies left behind in words we penned today. May their future be as advanced as ours became in a span of 30 years. They will always be rebuilding, for wars will be constant unless mankind has found a way to disarm and destroy all weapons that cause death. An eternal peace is needed for mankind to survive the future. May we who join our brothers and sisters from our past have a peace of mind knowing that we left a legacy in our words that will help them understand who we were and the times we lived and died in. May all mankind come together in peace and lay down their arms and pick up their instruments of joy and productiveness. Lovely work Phyllis.
