    Default Halloween In Scotland

    FAO BillMC:

    I know they always have the Fire Festival on Carleton Hill in Edinburgh every Samhain but do the Scottish do a lot of other Festivities during Halloween/Samhain?

    It is different from the American version of Halloween. Lanterns are made from turnips or 'neeps' as they say in Scotland. Children go 'guising' (dressing up in fancy dress) and calling on people's homes, but they have to earn their treats by singing a song, reciting a poem or some other form of entertainment. 'Dooking for apples' is a game that is sometimes played. It involves putting apples into a tub of water and picking them up with your teeth.

    Sounds like something similar to what we do.

    Do the Adults do anything else? I know the Carleton Hill Fire Festival takes place at around Beltane.

    The adults shoot up heroin and spend four days in a coma whilst the kids go out begging for money to buy more gear. The film Trainspotting is well worth a watch, it gives a good idea of what Scotland and the Scotch are all about.

    Bullshit! the only drugs they take are magick mushrooms or any other type of psychedellic used by shamanistic druids and then they jump naked through the Samhain bonfires.

    I saw Trainspotting once.

    My Favorite Scene is when the Main Character steals the Money out from Begbie's Arms while Begbie is Asleep.

    Then when Begbie Wakes Up, gets Arrested for Smashing Up The Room.

    No, I am not! I will stay indoors and get freaked out by watching horror films in the dark.
