Celebrating Celtic New Year with the Keeper of the Stones
According to Jude, Halloween or Samhain is Celtic New Year. It’s a festival all about all about ancestors, and a time to honor those that went before us and make them offerings.
It is also a time of going into darkness – to dream dreams of what we want in life. To look at life with a different perspective, to let go of what doesn’t work for us and to dream in those things in life that make our heart sing – before it’s time to plant the seeds of our hopes and dreams.
This doll is called ‘Keeper of the Stones’ and she has stood guarding the sacred circle of standing stones for generations. People would make a pilgrimage to the stones to ask for something but always giving thanks.
