    Default Hop-Tu-Naa!

    I just found out that the Manx refer to 'Halloween' as 'Hop-Tu-Naa'.

    They say that Kids tend to do some Trick or Treating in and around the Isle of Mann.

    I will find out more about how the Manx Celebrate 'Hop-Tu-Naa'.

    There is a Wikipedia Listing on the Manx 'Hop-Tu-Naa' Celebrations:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hop-tu-Naa

    "Hop-tu-Naa is a Celtic festival celebrated in the Isle of Man on 31 October. Predating Halloween, it is the celebration of the original New Year's Eve (Oie Houney). It is thought to be the oldest unbroken tradition in the Isle of Man."

    They even have some Hop-Tu-Naa Sing Songs and Costume Parties.

    Hop-Tu-Naa!!!

    Hanging out with the Manx has caused a bit of Tarot Card Reading Business to Pop Up.

    I got a Celtic Cross Reading Request for a Member of their Manx Forums named Mr.Sausage:

    Her Reading was done and the Fine Details PMed to Her. Here is the Summary:





    Your Hop-Tu-Naa Celtic Cross Spread has been done and the Fine Details been PMed to You.

    I feel this Spread indicates that a Close Loved One has You Feeling Reserved and Defensive and are now becoming Introverted towards that Person. But You will have Good Resources from some Good Comrades who will Aid You in Defending Yourself and getting the Comforts of Life that You may be Wishing for.

    Thus Concludes Your Tarot Card Spread and during this Reading, I have discovered how Great Manx Radio is for helping to set up a Good Atmosphere for doing a Tarot Card Reading.

    Fastyr Mie to All:

    I found a Great YouTube that shows the Traditional Hop-Tu-Naa Carving of Turnip 'Moot' Jack-O-Lanterns presented by a Lovely Manx Girl.

    Awens to All:

    Here is a YouTube about a Manx Corn Harvest Dolly that a Farmer makes on the Isle of Man.

    It is a type of Decoration that would be Perfect for Celebrating Hop-Tu-Naa on the Isle of Man:
