So it’s a little after the fact, but better late than never.  Samhain is, for you muggles, Halloween.  It is the day of the dead.  It is the end of the pagan year and it is the time where the veil between the worlds is the thinnest, hence the legends about the witching hour at midnight where unwary travellers run the risk of being abducted by disgruntled spirits and ghosts.  It is a day to remember those who have come, and gone, before.
