Samhain

I hate what Hallowe’en has become now – totally American and all about commercialism. When I was a kid it was still about folk beliefs, the festival of Samhain (pronounced, by the way, ‘sow-een’), and we would have fun games as a family such as apple bobbing and other things related to Harvest and the end of summer.

This hijacking of a millennia-old Celtic festival is yet another example of Welsh/Scots/Irish – Celt-  ethnic cleansing by spiritually- and historically bereft Capitalism.

Also, we tell kids not to accept sweets from strangers then one night a year we send them out onto the streets to do just that! No wonder they’re confused!

BBC News and Sky News currently have uninterupted coverage of rich white men in suits discussing how they can continue getting away with shafting us whilst protecting their insane profit margins.

Saith those with the money who get richer while shafting the rest of us..

“Why should we break our backs
Stupidly paying tax?
Better get some untaxed income
Better to pick-a-pocket or two.”
