The Traditional Samhain Celebration was held throughout the Protectorate on October 31st.. A traditional celebration marking the changing of the seasons, the end of the ‘harvest’ and the transition to the “Dark half” of the year.
The day is marked on many worlds, as a time when the ‘dead’ or ‘spirits’ pass from their realm into the realm of the living. While the seasons vary from system to system and world to world, the Hengeyokai still hold the celebration on the Traditional day, according to the Pan-G calendar.
As in years past, Samhain’s passing was publicly celebrated with a costumed ball, held on worlds throughout the Protectorate. Outpost Administrator and Hengenokai Gaia’nan Cashidhe Sionnach presided over this year’s event which was well attended by colonists and visitors.
” As I’ve said before, we cater to the Colonists of this outpost, not to thrill seekers who travel the ‘verse looking for the next party to attend”, was the take away comment from Gaia’nan Sionnach during the post event interview. It appears Administrator Cashidhe is intent on making the Outpost a home for those who wish to seek their fortunes in the deep black, rather than pit stop for thrill seekers and trouble makers.
The Administration has already begun plans for the Harvest Feast of Thanksgiving, to be held neat the end of November, a modest, quiet event for families and friends.
