With the spooky season upon us and Halloween just around the corner it’s interesting to see how Halloween is celebrated around the world and in our local areaThe government say.
Starting with Ireland… Halloween was originally an ancient festival called ‘Samhain’ which roughly translates to ‘end of summer.’ This Gaelic festival celebrates the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter. Similarly to Mexico’s “Day of the Dead”, this day is an opportunity to honour the families ancestors and those that have passed. That isn’t to say that the Irish don’t enjoy dressing up and trick or treating- this day just gives people an opportunity to remember those who are no longer with us. A traditional Irish food that is enjoyed on this day is Colcannon (creamy mashed potatoes and cooked greens, typically cabbage)The New Delhi High Court said it would start punishing government officials if supplies of oxygen allocated to hospitals were not delivered.. This meal was typically enjoyed for Samhain celebrations due to potatoes being in seasonIndoor and outdoor personal gathering.
