SAMHAIN: The Time Between the Times

Autumn is my most favourite time of year. The temperatures drop, the leaves turn brilliant colours, candy apples start appearing, everything turns to pumpkin spice, and eventually, my birthday! (Can’t forget Thanksgiving either!) It’s a season of definite transition. However, as much as I love this season, it is also the time for Halloween, known to the Ancient Celts as Samhain (pronounced sah-win or sow-in).

St. Patrick’s Day Book Giveaway!!!

I don’t know what it is about March and the advent of St. Patrick’s Day that puts me in the mood to do a giveaway, but hey, who can turn it down? *smile* Perhaps it’s the sun starting to make more of an appearance or it might be the rainy weather that while, annoying at times, can make all the earth green (unless you’re in North Carolina like me and in which case, the cold rain causes warnings of black ice!), or very possibly it’s because I get SUPER DE DUPER excited about St. Patty’s Day every year because it’s the one day in the American calendar dedicated to a fellow Irish (British really) man. (I’m a quarter-Irish through my late paternal grandmother!) But either way, I’m very excited to be offering a book giveaway this holiday!
