Samhain is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the "darker half" of the year. Traditionally, it is celebrated from the very beginning of one Celtic day to its end, or in the modern calendar, from sunset on 31 October to sunset on 1 November, this places it about halfway between the autumn equinox and the winter solstice. It is one of the four Gaelic seasonal festivals, along with Imbolc, Beltane and Lughnasadh. (Samhain Mandala - CJ Shelton)

The Celtic celebration of the winter solstice was called the Alban Arthuan, one of four celebrations that marked the solstice and equinox positions of the sun. Alban Arthuan was a festival of peace and a celebration of waxing solar light. Many honored the forthcoming Sun child by burning an oaken Yule log, and honored the Goddess in her many Mother aspects. The Father God was honored in various forms: as Santa Claus, the Old Sky God, Father Time, and the Holly King.
