I don’t spend much time shopping in Ireland. I especially avoid anything that looks like a mall. As friend Anthony observed recently, if you’ve seen one shopping center you’ve seen the mall. But this last trip I did wander into a Dunne’s store. Well, it is located near one of my favorite coffee shops.
It was approaching Halloween and I was drawn to a costume display, curious what Irish children favor for the holiday. Turns out, witches. Hands down. Yes, there are other choices. But the array of witchy attire was stunning.
Halloween. Samhain. The beginning of the new year on the Celtic calendar. It’s gratifying to see the wise woman tradition still alive in some wee way. So….boo who? Boo. I’m a witch!
