"Now is the Night of November Eve, as the Samhain rites begin.
Spirits step from the World Beyond, this night when the Veil is thin.
Coming through the Land of Shadows, awakening from the World of Dreams,
joining hands with the Children of Midnight as the Moonlight Lantern gleams.
Drifting in the Wind of Evening, Chanting words in an ancient tongue,
dancing light to the music of Fearies, as the Sacred Prayer is sung.
We honor this In-Between time, this space between Darkness and Light,
While greeting the Reign of the Winter King,
On this Windy Autumn Night."
Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!
