An raibh Samhain maith agat?

Last night was Oíche Samhain. I know what some of you are thinking. Sahmain is the old name for Halloween (or Hallowe'en) and that was last week.

Actually, Sahmain is lunar based, a bit like Easter. And the full moon was last night.

It was also a suitable night. Driving on country roads with heavy fog and a full moon gives the scene a full Silent Hill perspective. I winder when "Silent Hill : The Driving game" is coming out; points for running over zombies, its Death Race 2000 in green!.

In fact the heavy fog covering most of the county is helping in the entire horror film view of things.

take care,
Will

Hi, it's your local Gaeilge Grammar police, just to point out that while oíche and samhain are indeed the correct spellings of these words on their own, when put together it should be "Oíche Shamhna" - an tuiseal ginideach.


Now, what's the Irish for pedant?......
